On Monday the 7th of March, Ellen McGrath, Lynn Collinson and Sarah Fenlon went to Croke Park on behalf of Loreto Beaufort for the national flag post-primary presentation ceremony. This was held in collaboration with the Thomas F. Meaghar Foundation.
It was a wonderful ceremony, with a speech from Reverand Michael Kavanagh, the Chair of the Thomas F. Meagher Foundation, and the president, Michael D. Higgins, addressed the crowd, about the importance of our national flag, the importance of young people and the Ireland of the future.
Ellen McGrath was the representative to receive the National flag on behalf of Loreto Beaufort, and a commemorative folder, which contains a copy of the Proclamation both in Irish and in English, Amhrán na bhFiann and a booklet on care of the flag.
It was a significant day for Loreto Beaufort in this centenary year.
