Invitations were sent out to the local community and there was a fantastic response to the call!!
The pupils researched the historical background to 1916 including what life was like in Ireland at that time. The reason behind the rising and the locations of the rising around Ireland. The stats of the injured, the deaths and the signatories that are on the Proclamation. There was hardly a dry eye in the house following a report on the background of the song Grace. This song touched the hearts of all and brought the history of 1916 alive.
