About us

 

Thomas Duffy, Macra National President

Macra na Feirme is a voluntary organisation representing a thriving community of 10,000 young people from rural Ireland.

We advocate for, nurture and develop our members aged between 17 and 35 in a fun, inclusive and supportive environment.

Our programmes and activities encourage young people to play an active role in their local community, making rural Ireland an attractive place to live and work.  

Our Mission

The mission of Macra na Feirme is to contribute to the sustainable development of rural communities in Ireland by:

  • supporting the social, economic, cultural, personal development and well-being of young people who have a rural connection, including young farmers.

  • representing their interests in the development and implementation of relevant policies, products, programs and services at national, regional and local levels and by advocating on their behalf.
