Great double victory for Devil’s Bit Macra

Devil’s Bit Macra Club Members pictured on Friday night, 28th February 2014, at Bobby Reidy’s Bar in Newtown, Nenagh, for the North Tipperary Round of the National ‘Personality’ Competitions.  Opening proceedings were former and current holders of the ‘Mr Personality’ title Joe McGrath and Paudie Meade.

A huge number of Devil’s Bit Members competed on the night for the opportunity to win one of the four titles, ‘Queen of the Land’, ‘Miss Macra’, ‘Miss Blue Jeans’ and ‘Mr. Personality’.

Judging on the night were Portroe woman Lisa Hickey, the 2012 Tipperary Rose; Mountmellick’s own Gemma Goulding who was crowned ‘International Miss Macra’ for 2013-2014; and from Ballineen, West Cork, Geraldine Barrett the current national ‘Queen of the Land’.  The judges collectively said that choosing a winner in each category was so difficult as the contestants on the night were all so good.

Devil’s Bit club was overjoyed when Margaret Stanley, won the title ‘Queen of the Land’; and Meave Campion won ‘Miss Macra’.

Preparations are underway for organising the Annual Macra Spring Fling, to be held in Fitzpatrick’s Country Club, Clonmore on the 29th March.

More information will be forthcoming on this event, but at present it can be revealed that Silver Dollar will be performing on the night.  Tickets go on sale on Wednesday night the 12th March, priced at only 15 euro, available from any committee member.
