Avril Collins - Callan Macra

"One of my favourite things about Macra is that you can try out different activities such as sports, public speaking or drama. A lot of clubs outside of Macra just focus on one thing, but through Macra you get to try various activities and competitions that you normally wouldn’t have the opportunity todo! "

Shane Fitzgerald - Kilmacthomas Macra

"Macra offers a huge social benefit to young farmers through involvement in Young Farmer Discussion Groups which hosts various events such as farm walks and talks. Macra creates a platform to allow young farmer's voices to be heard and in turn influence future national and EU policy decisions."

Aoife O'Connor - Freemount Macra

"A personal ambition of mine is to ensure that anyone coming into our club is as welcome and as at ease as I was when I first joined Freemount Macra. I would love for another person to get as much out of Macra as I have, I’ve made friends for life and great memories."
