Student Aislinn Somers presented with Leinster U14 Medal for 2014
Aislinn Somers was recently presented with her Leinster U14 medal for 2014 at a ceremony in Westmanstown. She played a starring role at full back for the Dubs. They were undefeated in Leinster but lost by the minimum to Mayo in the All Ireland Final. She is pictured here with her proud parents. We are all very proud of her achievements here in the Donahies. Up the Dubs!
At a recent ceremony in Waterford, Donahies Community School was honoured to receive our national flag from the President of Ireland, Michael D Higgins. Two of our students, Adam Murphy and Chloe Fowler accepted the flag on behalf of the school. They are pictured above with Peter Keohane, Deputy Principal and Cillian O’Leary, History teacher. Mary Kennedy of RTE was MC of the event with entertainment provided by Eurovision entrant Molly Sterling.
The tricolour, designed by Thomas Meagher, was first flown in Waterford in 1848 as a symbol of peace and unity between all on the island. Over the last year all of the flags presented to some 300 schools were flown at 33 The Mall, in Wateford, where Thomas F Meagher flew the very first tricolour in 1848.
