Tydavnet Macra na Feirme meeting on Friday 13th April at 9.30pm in the Rock Inn, Tydavnet. New members always welcome. As well as being a wonderful social club, joining Macra offers lots of benefits for young people over 17 years.

A jam packed calendar is already in place for Macra for 2018. With competitions, social events, festivals and training every week, Macra is an ideal organisation for those looking to get out and meet like-minded people.  Established in 1944 by a group of agricultural science teachers, the ethos of Macra today is very similar to its beginnings – providing a social outlet and a chance for personal development. A significant difference is that we’re no longer solely focused on young farmers – Macra is an organisation for everyone. Macra’s work is divided into six key areas of activity, agriculture, sports, travel, public speaking, community involvement and performing arts. In Macra, there’s something for everyone.

Macra membership also offers discounts including 15% off FBD car insurance ( a great incentive given the astronomical quotes for young drivers from most companies); €5.50 tickets in Omniplex cinemas on the 2nd Tuesday of every month; great discounts on phones and broadband with O2 and the student fare on Bus Eireann services. There has never been a better time to join Macra – with membership starting from €20, it’s a cheap and cheerful social life with a difference!

So, if its friendship, fun, competitions, public speaking, community involvement, travel or agriculture that you’re looking for in 2018,  come along to the gang in the Rock Inn on Friday night, and the craic starts here!  For more information contact Training Officer Jennifer Arthur 087 1853485.
