On Friday April 29th Macra na Feirme members past and present came together for a special function to honour Denis Carroll, Ardnaneen, past officer of Lackareigh and Terelton Macra branches, as he approaches his 80th birthday in May. In a 'This is Your Life' presentation, Den's involvement in Macra throughout the county over the course of half a century was recalled. In photos and personal reminiscences we were reminded of Den's roles as competitor, playwright, adjudicator, organiser, County delegate, drama producer, entertainer and supporter. The crowd of over one hundred included members and former members of many local Macra branches and serveral Macra personalities from far-flung corners of county Cork.
