As part of the Ireland 2016 Centenary Programme, Óglaigh na hÉireann, the Defence Forces, will present the National Flag and a copy of the Proclamation to every primary school in the country.

Bronnfaidh Óglaigh na hÉireann an Bhratach Náisiúnta agus cóip den Fhorógra ar gach bunscoil sa tír mar chuid den Chlár Comórtha Céad Bliain faoi choinne Éire 2016.

The 1916 centenary year is a unique opportunity to discover the origin of the national emblem, why these colours were chosen and what they signify for Ireland today. To mark this special occasion, every primary school in the country will be presented with a specially made flag, delivered by members of the Defence Forces.

The delivery of the National Flag began in the second week of September 2015 and by the end of February 2016 the Defence Forces, will have visited more than 3,250 schools. They will also receive a copy of the 1916 Proclamation and a poster with the words of our National Anthem, Amhrán na bhFiann and a booklet on how to take care of the flag.

Since September 2015, hundreds of thousands of children and young people have created special ceremonies in their schools to mark the visit by members of Óglaigh na hÉireann.

Deis ar leith í an bhliain chomórtha céad bliain 1916 chun eolas a fháil ar bhunús an tsuaitheantais náisiúnta, an fáth a roghnaíodh na dathanna sin agus cad a chiallaíonn siad d’Éirinn sa lá atá inniu ann. Chun an ócáid speisialta seo a cheiliúradh, tabharfar bratach shaindéanta do gach bunscoil sa tír, arna seachadadh ag baill d’Óglaigh na hÉireann.

Tosaíodh ag bronnadh na Brataí Náisiúnta sa dara seachtain de Mheán Fómhair 2015 agus faoi dheireadh mhí Feabhra 2016, beidh cuairt tugtha ag Óglaigh na hÉireann ar bhreis is 3,250 scoil. Gheobhaidh siad cóip d’Fhorógra 1916 agus póstaer ar a bhfuil Amhrán na bhFiann freisin, agus leabhrán faoi conas aire a thabhairt don bhratach.

Ó Mheán Fómhair 2015 i leith, tá searmanais speisialta cruthaithe ag na céadta míle páiste agus duine óg ina scoileanna chun cuairt na mball d’Óglaigh na hÉireann a cheiliúradh.
