The Light entertainment competition incorporates song, dance, comedy, instrumental pieces and everything in between and is the ideal opportunity for clubs and their members to gain experience in producing and performing a top class show.It is one of the highlights of the Macra calendar and this year is shaping up to be one of the best finals yet.
Six teams from around the country will compete in Éire Óg G.A.A. Hall, Ovens, this Saturday evening for the prestigious title which is currently held by local club, Berrings Macra from Muskerry. On the night Athboy (Meath), Bantry (Carbery), Cavan, Clonakilty (Carbery), Freemount (Avondhu) and Terelton (Muskerry) will perform to a capacity audience to showcase their talents having come through hard fought semi-finals in Trim, Cappoquin and Mallow.
