Macra is a vibrant organisation based in towns and villages in every county in Ireland. We cater for 17-35 year olds and provide a fun, learning and social community for those interested in rural development and issues of concerns for those living there, as well as our very important and well known background in agriculture and all things related to the land.
We have continued to evolve along with Ireland and its changing demographics and now just one third of our members are working directly on farms, though many more have a strong connection through their grandparents, parents, and siblings. We now have an almost even split between young women and young men in membership.
In all we have over 10,000 members organised on a club and county basis. We will put you in touch with your local club on joining and they will reach out and welcome you. We have over 150 clubs in total and we are forming new clubs all of the time.
Note on Membership Types
- Student Membership covers full-time students up to the age of 24. We also offer this special rate to new joiners of Macra.
- Our Standard Membership covers everybody else i.e, up to the age of leaving club membership.
- Our Patron Membership covers those whose time being involved in clubs has finished and who wish to retain their connection to and support of Macra as well as attending special patron event.
