Macra na Feirme celebrates its 75th anniversary this year and to mark the milestone the organisation plans to release a book looking back on the history of Macra through photographs. Work on the project is well under way and we are requesting that all past and present members send us any interesting Macra photos they have, no matter what era they're from.
We are particularly interested in photos from the 1940s, 50s, 60s and 70s, so if you have photos that tell a story or show a memorable event, please get in touch with the Macra na Feirme Public Relations Manager Joe Coffey through email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by telephone (01 426 8907). Alternatively, you can post photographs to Macra na Feirme, Irish Farm Centre, Bluebell, Dublin 12. All photos will be returned to the sender (please include your postal address). The history of Macra na Feirme is a depiction of rural Ireland, this is your opportunity to share your own Macra memories with others. Your help is very much appreciated.
