North Tipperary Macra Na Feirme

It has been yet another busy few weeks for Devilsbit Macra.

Devilsbit Young Farmers Group:
Our Young Farmers Group had another outing tonight to Jim Delahunty’s dairy farm in Carrig, Roscrea. Jim has a superb dairy set up and it was fantastic to get the opportunity to see his farm and have him speak to us.
Many thanks to Jim. Also thanks to Brian Shanahan for organising the event in conjunction with both Jim and our Devilsbit YFG.

Capers Competition:
Well done to our superb Capers cast & crew who gave an absolutely amazing performance last night in Birr. The Capers act, “Mass Time” was written and directed by our own member, Eimear Meagher. The cast & crew consisted of Catherine Maher (props and producer), Diarmaid Meagher (Musician), Frank Hayes, Eoin Bourke, Helen Hayes, Joe Maher, Caoimhe Egan, Paudie Meade, John Keane, Joe McGrath, Conor O’Dea, Maebh Campion, Mary Joyce & Bill Bergin. While Devilsbit will not be progressing to the next round, they did club and county proud with Frank Hayes winning the Over Best Male Performer and Maebh Campion receiving a nomination for best Female Performer. Well done to our fantastic cast and crew who gave a terrific performance in Birr last weekend.
