Flag Ceremony 1916 Rising


From Tuesday, 15th March, we held a flag-raising ceremony in the school.

The pupils of Ballagh wrote their own Proclamation which was read out by 5th class pupils. Sixth class pupils read the Proclamation from 1916.  The children played the National Anthem on tin whistle and the flag was raised by the youngest and oldest pupil in the school – Leah Trimble Higgins and David Cullen.


The children in the senior room displayed their projects of buildings and landmarks from the 1916 rising.  They gave an informative account of the importance these buildings and landmarks played during the rising.
