Thanks to all the children who worked so hard to provide such a hilarious and entertaining performance.
A special thanks to all who helped with the children with their costumes – they looked fantastic!
Finally, thanks to all who attended the play and who generously supported our raffle on the night.
A wonderful night was had by all!
The children of Glencorrib National School were delighted to host a member of the Irish Army on Tuesday 8th of December.
During the ceremony, the 6th class played the National Anthem, Amhran na bhFiann on the tin whistle. Darren helped to read the 1916 proclamation and Cathal received the Irish flag from our special visitor, Sargent Grufferty; who came with a special message, and special gifts for the school.
Ireland will celebrate the 100 years since the 1916 rising next year, 2016. Children across Ireland will take part in writing a new proclamation for 2016, and will develop their understanding of Irish history including that of the Irish flag.
