Ireland joined the European Economic Community (ECC)

Today Ms Nicholson raised our beautiful new EU Flag surrounded by the Student Council. We also had a performance of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 played by Karl Rochford. Symphony No. 9 features the much loved ‘Ode to Joy’, recognised today as the European Anthem as part of the Ár nAmhrán / Our Anthem Initiative.

Today we celebrated Europe Day 2023, marking Ireland’s 50 years of EU membership.
