It was a day the young people of the county will remember for the rest of their lives, the day when in school they celebrated the centenary of the 1916 Rising.

In schools everywhere across the county Proclamation Day was celebrated with a range of special activities in schools with many putting on short plays  as part of the day of activities.

For months the children had been busy learning their history of the events of one hundred years ago and working on their individual projects.

And last week in school halls everywhere the fruits of their efforts were put on display in front of excited and proud parents and members of the public.

While many of the children taking part were probably too young to fully appreciate all the details of the events of one hundred years ago they will in time remember the day they played a part in remembering those who took the first steps towards creating the Irish nation in 1916.
