Our Jadotville Heroes:

posted 16 Oct 2018, 14:14 by cora tighe   [ updated 17 Oct 2018, 00:56 ]

The campaign to recognise the heroism of Company A Jadotville, which was achieved with the awarding of the Jadotville medal last December, in Athlone, has been acknowledged by a special ceremony in MCS.  However, there is still the issue of six or seven of the company recommended for special awards for bravery and indeed the recognition of the brilliance of Commandant Pat Quinlan, who brought the whole company home alive. The Head of the Indian Army has stated that if Pat Quinlan was a member of the Indian Army, he would have received the Highest Order of Merit.  Indeed, his defensive military tactics have been studied in military academies in Italy, Germany, America, Kosovo, Australia and Britain, among others.  They have only begun to study them in Ireland.  A number of invited guests addressed our students on Mon. 15th October.  Commandant Leo Quinlan explained the siege of Jadotville and the military tactics employed.  Vice Admiral Mark Mellett, Head of all Irish Armed Forces was represented by Captain Dolan, who spoke about the 60th Anniversary of Irish Peacekeeping in the UN.  A number of politicians spoke on the campaign, including Senator Gerard Craughwell, Catherine Connolly, Galway, TD and our own Darragh O Brien,TD, all of whom worked with our school on the campaign.  We would like to thank former Taoiseach, Enda Kenny, for all of his encouragement and support throughput this campaign and Taoiseach Leo Varadkar for his continued support.  Micheál Martin, TD,  has supported the campaign from the outset.  Noel Grealish TD was due to speak on the campaign for recognition of the Jadotville campaign but was, unfortunately,  unable to attend at the last minute.   We would also like to thank author Declan Power, on whose book the film, 'The Siege of Jadotville' was based.  Declan sent us a personal message: 'the students and staff of Malahide Community School are to be congratulated on their campaign and recognition of an important event in Irish history and for their efforts to have Company A Jadotville awarded The Jadotville Medal in recognition of their heroism'.  We want to thank our students who led our campaign so stoically and our Fifth Year History and Politics and Society students and our TY students who attended our ceremony so respectfully.  Finally, a special word of thanks to our History teacher, Mr Kevin Manning, who has spearheaded our school campaign from the every beginning and without whom this unique and historic experience would not have happened.
