Win­ning ethos shines through

Irish Examiner - Farming - - MACRA -

Con­stant in­volve­ment in com­mu­nity events has helped Co Cork’s Freemount Macra club in the Avondhu re­gion to win the na­tional Macra Club of the Year ti­tle for the third time since 2010.

They hosted their fifth an­nual trac­tor run last April, and raised €5,500 for the Tem­ple Street Chil­dren’s Hos­pi­tal and for Mary­mount Hospice.

Self-be­lief also plays a huge part in the club’s suc­cess, be­lief in what they do and be­lief in their club and in their mem­bers.

There is a cul­ture that club mem­bers want to do things for the club, for the team, a team that they all want to be part of. Sup­port­ing each other has played a vi­tal part in fos­ter­ing friend­ships, whether it is join­ing a team, help­ing out back­stage, or sup­port­ing the team. There is also a club ethos based on open­ness and a will­ing­ness to learn, thus en­sur­ing they di­ver­sify and chal­lenge them­selves. Freemount Macra was founded in 1962, and cel­e­brated their Golden Ju­bilee in 2012.

Other 2018 na­tional suc­cesses were club mem­ber Siob­han Ring win­ning the beef stock judg­ing na­tional f i n a l ; F r e e m o u n t we r e run­ners-up in both the Ca­pers and Drama na­tional fi­nals; and their pub­lic speak­ing team’s All Ire­land win.

En­joy­ing the Se­andún Mys­tery Tour, which ended up in Clon­akilty!
