Macra na Feirme has a proud tradition of promoting and developing young men and women’s skills across the country. Arguably one of the most difficult things for anyone to do is to stand in front of a crowd and speak. Many would argue it’s even harder to speak about ourselves. But that’s exactly what 6 brave members of Glanmire Macra done last Saturday in the Seandun round of the Titles competition.
The Titles competition is the Macra equivalent of the Rose of Tralee, just without the television cameras! There were 4 Macra Titles on the line, for the men – their were vying for the much coveted Mr Personality. While the women could claim one of three potential crowns – Blue Jeans, Queen of the Land or Ms Macra.
Despite the lack of television coverage, it is still a difficult thing for anyone to do. Glanmire’s Tomas Thorton, Cathal Cashman, Aisling Walsh, Michael Buckley, Declan O Hara and Zara Long took to the stage and gave an insightful account of their involvement in Macra.
The Titles night is always entertaining and with 18 contestants across the Seandun region, the audience were treated to many amusing anecdotes, stories and fond memories of Macra na Feirme.
After all said and done Glanmire’s Declan O Hara claimed one of the four titles being crowned the 2018 Mr Personality for the Seandun region. After his success Declan commented about his “genuine surprise” at winning the title and he hopes “to represent the region and Glanmire to the best of (his) abilities come April”
