BIG preparations are underway by members of Killoughey Macra this week for the Mr Personality Festival 2012 in Kilkenny, in which their very own Offaly Mr Personality Michael Buckley will be competing for the prestigious title of ‘Mr Personality 2012’.
Michael will be well known around the country and especially throughout Offaly for his musical talents, having played in nearly all of the pubs up and down the county.
His musical talents will come in very handy in his quest to become ‘Mr Personality 2012’ as he will be required to perform a party piece which will be taken into account in choosing a winner.
The ‘Mr Personality’ competition is a long running festival run by Kilkenny City Macra which takes place in the Springhill Court Hotel, Kilkenny from this Thursday, April 26 to Sunday, April 29.
It promises to be a brilliant weekend and more information can be found on www.mrpersonality.ie
Killoughey Macra wishes Michael the best of luck.
On March 25 the ladies of Killoughey Macra made the trip down to the sports arena in University of Limerick to represent Killoughey and Offaly in the national round of the Macra basketball, sporting their new jerseys, kindly sponsored by Dan & Molly’s Pub, Ballyboy.
After a fine win in their first game, the ladies narrowly lost out in their next game and were knocked out.
This is the first year for a long time that Killoughey Macra have had a ladies basketball team and with increasing membership numbers it is hoped to have stronger participation in future competitions.
