I'm A Macra Member, Get Me Out of Here

An action-packed week of events saw our club members, Sarah Kelly, Conor Quinn and Sarah Jane Egan brave it out to take part in the South Leitrim 'I'm a macra member get me out of here' event on Saturday, September 2 in the Leitrim Marina Hotel in Leitrim. They all fought through the good, the bad and the ugly of creepy crawlies, gunge and grime. In the end, club member Sarah Jane Egan was crowned Queen of the I'm a macra member get me out of here event. Well done to all three members for getting involved and participating with a great night of celebrations for Sarah Jane and all the support that attended for all our members on the night.

Split the Skittles

Our members battled it out last Sunday, August 27 to try and split the skittles in the county round of bowling but unfortunately weren't successful on the night coming in fourth. However, the club was very proud of club member Conor Corcoran who was recognised as the highest scoring member of the night for his fantastic bowling skill. On Friday, September 1, our members had their general knowledge under scrutiny taking part in the county round of Question Time. Congratulations and best wishes to Tullamore Macra who took the titles for bowling and Question time this past weekend of busy activities in the macra calendar.
