National Title for Cork’s Knockraha Macra at NDC Bowling Final

The All-Ireland final of Macra’s National Dairy Council bowling competition took place last weekend with the team from Knockraha Macra, Seandun, Co. Cork taking home the top title. They beat Kilkenny’s Callan Macra.

The national final of the competition was held in Cosmic Bowling in Tullamore on Sunday, 15th November. Hosted by Offaly Macra, the final took place as part of the WR Shaw Queen of the Land festival won this year by Kerry Macra’s Christine Buckley, a member of Killeentierna Macra.

Macra na Feirme National President, Seán Finan, said, “Bowling is a great way to introduce physical activity in a fun and social way. The NDC Bowling competition is a popular competition in Macra and I wish to congratulate Knockraha Macra on their win.”

Being active is crucial for health and wellbeing and Macra, along with the National Dairy Council, are keen to emphasise the benefits of both exercise and healthy eating. Drinking a glass of skimmed milk after taking part in sports is a great way to rehydrate as a number of research studies indicated.
