Muskerry Macra clubs spread­ing fes­tive cheer

The Corkman - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

MACRA na Feirme is an ac­tive group of young(ish) peo­ple who are al­ways will­ing to do a good turn lo­cally, and the sea­son of good­will is no ex­cep­tion.

Mem­bers of Macra clubs across Muskerry will be rais­ing funds for good causes, help­ing at sea­sonal events and, of course, so­cial­is­ing a fair bit, too, over the next few weeks. Here’s a smat­ter­ing of what’s planned in Muskerry:

Donough­more Macra will be hold­ing its an­nual Christ­mas cof­fee morn­ing this Sun­day, De­cem­ber 9, at 12pm in Donough­more Com­mu­nity Cen­tre.

All funds raised are in aid of the CUH chil­dren’s ward. Peo­ple drop­ping in to sup­port this fund-raiser can ex­pect a few sur­prises on the day.

In the lead-up to Christ­mas, mem­bers will also be col­lect­ing Christ­mas shoe-boxes in aid of Cork Penny Din­ners.

Aghi­nagh Macra will hold its Christ­mas party on De­cem­ber 22. How­ever, the lo­ca­tion is be­ing kept top se­cret for the mo­ment – just pen­cil in the date.

Ber­rings Macra is do­ing a re­cruit­ment drive in Jan­uary and is ac­tively look­ing for new mem­bers. It is or­gan­is­ing a so­cial night out in Kil­lar­ney on Jan­uary 12.
