The Year 14 historians attended the Legacy of the War Conference held on 14th November in the Jethro Centre in Lurgan. They enjoyed three very interesting lectures on different aspects of remembrance of the war. The conference was addressed by Quincy Duggan, Sean O Hare and Eamon Pheonix. Mrs Murphy, Head of History would like to thank the Jethro Centre for the invitation. It was a very enjoyable and educational day.

All nine students were highly commended for their excellent delivery of the Yeats poem ‘An Irish Airman Forsees His Death’ and another poem of their choice.
This prestigious competition is organised every year by Poetry Ireland and the National Library of Ireland.
When Seamus Heaney won the David Cohen Prize for Lifetime Achievement in Literature, he nominated Poetry Aloud for an accompanying award. The late poet remarked that the competition “Brings poetry into the memory and affections of the young in a way that will make it a lifelong possession.”
