Denise Mitchell TD raises flag at ceremony in Darndale primary school for Proclamation Day
Newly elected Sinn Féin TD for Dublin Bay North, Denise Mitchell, has raised the state’s flag at a ceremony at her former primary school in Darndale.
Speaking at the event Deputy Mitchell said:
“I was honoured to be invited back here for this event to commemorate the centenary of 1916.
“This school is one of many across the county and the state where the 1916 Proclamation was read out and the tri colour was raised.
“Unfortunately the many ideals expressed in this historical document have not yet been realised.
“The children of the nation are not being cherished equally and we must seize the opportunity to deal with the crisis in housing, healthcare and childcare. “
