What is Macra?

Macra na Feirme is an organisation for young people between the ages of 17 and 35 who are interested in getting involved in sports, travel, drama, debating, or just want to meet new people and have some fun! To be a member of Macra, you must join a Macra club in your area. This will open the door to new friends and new activities. There are hundreds of clubs across Ireland bursting with activity who always welcome a new face.

We have competitions to suit everyone and you don’t need to be an expert to take part. You will meet young people from all over the country and can get involved in a wide variety of areas including agriculture, sport, travel, public speaking, performing arts and community involvement.
