Macra na Feirme has organised a night at the dogs on November 28 to fundraise for its local clubs.

Macra National President, Kieran O’Dowd alongside AIB Club of the Year winners, Freemount Macra are behind the event which will help Macra clubs nationwide continue to support, train and develop Ireland’s rural young people and young farmers.

“We’re all set for a fun night of betting, music and craic at our club fundraising nights on the 28th and 29th November. You can choose between Galway, Mullingar, Cork, Waterford and Limerick for a great night out where ticket sales benefit the club you buy them from! We’d like to invite you to come out and support your local Macra,” said Kieran O’Dowd.

The ‘Racing for Macra’ club fundraiser will take place on November 28, in Galway greyhound stadium and on November 29 in Waterford, Mullingar, Cork and Limerick. Tickets cost €10 and cover entry, race card, entertainment and entry to the national draw for a chance to win cash prizes €2,000, €1,000 or €500. You can buy tickets from your local Macra club, who benefit from the funds, or contact the Macra national office.
