The sun was shining on Proclamation Day when our resident, Austin Coffey, raised the Irish flag in TLC Straffan. Several of our residents read verses of the poem ‘Erin go Bragh’ and Ciaran O Dhugail even read out the Irish Proclamation as Gaeilge! All the staff and family members commented on what an excellent job our readers did on the day. Afterwards, a live band played Irish music in the conservatory and we drank hot chocolate with marshmallows. A fantastic day was had by everyone. It was the perfect way to mark the occasion.
