On March 12th, 2015, the Thomas F. Meagher Foundation held the first school’s presentation event, which took place in Waterford at the Kingfisher Club, with a speech by our special guest of honour, President Michael D. Higgins.

Nearly 300 schools took part in the event where they will all received an Irish flag that has flown from 33 The Mall, Waterford, Where Thomas F. Meagher flew the first tricolour flag in 1848.
With the participation of schools from all over Ireland, it truly was an incredible day.
More photos, including the individual schools photos, can be found in the Thomas F. Meagher Foundation album, with the password 123
Don’t worry if you are a school who couldn’t attend this year, we will be hosting another event next year to present the other secondary schools in Ireland with a Tricolour too!
