Participation in the Macra competitions calendar provides members with an opportunity to acquire the skills and self-confidence they need to reach their personal targets in life. Competitions are also about having fun with fellow competitors.

The Competitions Committee is responsible for the running of all national competitions. It is a priority of this committee to give as many members as possible the opportunity to take part in the programme every year. The committee monitors the success of each competition to ensure that it is serving its purpose, and firmly believes in improving the programme all the time to strive to meet the needs of competitors.

Each year thousands of members take part in Macra na Feirme competitions - an indication of the success and importance of the competition programme.

Note: Online forms only to be completed by authorised county officers. Entry fees must be paid directly to national office.
