Children Seen and Heard 1916-2016
by G Finan
Dino, Christopher, Iris and Niamh attended a special ceremonial event at Áras an Uachtaráin on Wednesday June 15th along with hundreds of other pupils from around the country in remembrance of all the children who died during the Easter Rising 1916 and to share their vision for Ireland in the future.
Hosted by President Michael D. Higgins, the grounds of Aras an Uachtarain had been transformed for the day so that children were able to enjoy playing popular games from 1916. The formal ceremony included a lantern procession, one for each of the 40 children who died in the Rising, a presentation by some of the children including Dino on their vision for the future, the burying of a time capsule and a special tree-planting ceremony.
