On Friday night last the Devilsbit Club won the North Tipperary round of the Macra na Feirme Debating Competition. The team comprised Captain, Arthur Griffin, Tim Maher, Gerard Fogarty and Karen Hardiman. The motion which was defeated was “that gambling be banned worldwide”.
Devilsbit Macra and Moyne Macra will represent North Tipperary in the next round of the Competition. Members were also in Banagher on Friday night at a Macra fundraiser and a great time was had by all.
Members will attend a special Table Quiz in aid of Pieta House in Roscrea on the 17 of February. Devilsbit Macra will hold a General Knowledge Table Quiz on Friday night 27 January at 9.30 in Michael Finn’s Pub Templemore.
All are welcome. Many prizes on the night.
We have also decided to publish a monthly newsletter to keep members informed of our activities and to act as a recruiting tool.
Anyone that wants to join Macra can contact Bridget at 086 0822038 or find us on Facebook.
Our club covers the Templemore, Thurles and Roscrea areas.
