Croom Macra na Feirme

Community Spirit is alive and active in the Maigueside Region as a new  Macra na Feirme has been formed in the Croom area after many years and they have been inundated with new members ,as a past member myself  of the Macra in days of the Quizzes (Will we ever forget Peter Murphy and his Cross Country Quiz on RTE and his Quiz books )The Field Evenings ,The Debates ,the endless craic.

I remember doing AG Science (EGG slang we used to call it in school) Agricultural Science in school for the Leaving Cert, a Christian Brother said to me, do pass as you don’t know your weeds .I met him years later and said great advice I did honours on the day and got one .Sometimes people think Macra is all about farming well it’s a lot more and has a great social side.
