Members of Devilsbit Macra travelled to the Annual Macra na Feirme Rally, held this year in the Radisson Blu Hotel in Little Island, Cork. A great weekend was had by all who attended. Devilsbit Macra represented North Tipperary in the National finals of the Know Your Ag Quiz and managed to come fourth following a strong showing from a number of teams. The team was made up of Sarah Guilfoyle, Padraig Meade, Joe McGrath and Tim Maher. This was followed by a fancy dress party which was enjoyed by all.
On Saturday a number of events were organised including farm walks, future of Dairy Industry Conference and a trip to Ballymaloe. Devilsbit Macra also represented North Tipperary in the Beef and Sheep Stock judging Competition which took place in Fermoy Mart on Sunday. Later we travelled to Kinsale to take in the atmosphere in the cuisine capital of Ireland. Best of luck to Roisin Ryan from neighbouring Moyne Macra representing North Tipperary Macra in the Queen of the Land Competition taking place this weekend in Tullamore.
