100 Years of Voting In Ireland.

Today, December 14th, marks the celebration of 100 YEARS since the people of Ireland voted

in the 2018 elections and moved a step closer to having their own Parliament.

It was also a monumental day for Irish women who had suceeded in fighting for the right to vote just months earlier.

The Junior Infants took time out from busy class work to mark the day and hold their own voting as a tribute to all the great women and men from the past who gave their lives and liberty for our right to vote.
