MCC's Maor Brataí Mark Ireland's National Flag Day 2021
Today, the eve of St. Patrick's Day, is our National Flag Day. Mullingar Community College are proud to be participating in this year's event with the support of the Thomas F. Meagher foundation. It is an opportunity for us all to celebrate and promote active citizenship and inclusivity in our school.

At the beginning of this school year, two fifth year students- Aaron Russell and Bobby Archibold were appointed as the school's official 'Maor Brataí'. Each day Aaron and Bobby raise our school flags before the beginning of the school day, and they take down our National Flag each evening before going home as protocol dictates.

On the 7th of March 1848, our national Tricolour was flown for the first time when Thomas F. Meagher raised it in Waterford City.

"The white in the centre signified a lasting truce between orange and green. I trust that beneath its folds the hands of the Irish Catholic and the Irish Protestant may be clasped in generous and heroic brotherhood" - T. F. Meager, 1848.

Aaron and Bobby were delighted to represent our school in receiving our new Tricolour from the Thomas F. Meagher Foundation and raised it for the first time this morning.
