On Thursday, the 8th of October, 2 army officers visited our school. Their names were Lieutenant Deirdre Molloy and Sergeant John Maloney. They came to present us with the Irish Flag and read the Proclamation. For 10 minutes, they asked us to pretend that we were in the army too which was fun. That meant we had to sit up straight and answer with "Yes M'am" and "Yes Sergeant". Sergeant Maloney told us some rules about the Irish flag and Lieutenant Molloy presented the flag to Hannah, Taylor and Mya, who received the flag on behalf of the whole school. Hannah's great grand uncle fought in the war, Taylor's great grand father witnessed the war and Mya's birthday is on the day the rising began. The Irish army are our heroes.
