Kerry Macra recently held their AGM online via Zoom. It is the first year in the county’s history that the AGM has taken place online, there was a great attendance.

With our AGM completed it meant we could make a start on the new Macra year, even in these strange times. Since March the majority of Macra related events have been taking place online through Zoom.

On Friday the 11th of September Kerry Macra held their first in person competition of the new year, Bowling. Clubs set out from all around Kerry to attend the County round in Bowling Buddies, Tralee.

The clubs that entered were as follows; Causeway. Castleisland District, Kenmare and Killarney Macra na Feirme.

Chairperson Joanne Lawlor said ” We were absolutely delighted with the turn out on the night, a good number of members came from all clubs and it was good to see everyone enjoying themselves during these uncertain times. And we are looking forward to the rest of the Macra year and hopefully we will be able to adapt to any new restrictions that come our way to keep the young people in Kerry active.”

Killarney came out on top on the night and will now represent Kerry Macra in the National Finals at a later date. Causeway members Joanne Lawlor and Pa Lucid had the highest scores of the night.

Kerry Macra organised to climb Mount Brandon in west Kerry on Sunday the 13th of September. There was a great turnout out of members from across the county.

While it was wet & foggy at the top, members enjoyed the views on their way up as they followed the 14 crosses to reach the top. It was a great way to get members out and about. while adhering to government guidelines. Kerry Macra’s social officer Trevor Coffey organised the event.

If you are between the age of 17-35 and looking to get out and socialise, please don’t hesitate to contact us on our Facebook page, Kerry Macra, we can help you find a club near you.
