Thank you to everyone who helped to make the South Tipperary Macra Annual Raft Race such a success last Saturday, we were very impressed with the dedication and hard work that went into building the different rafts from around the country! Massive congratulations to the race winners, Kilmacthomas Macra from Waterford, and well done to both Callan Macra from Kilkenny who took second place and Kinsalebeg Macra from Waterford who were worthy third place winners. Congratulations also to Donoghmore Macra from Cork who won the award for Best Raft with their impressive castle, complete with drawbridge. A special thanks to everyone who helped out in the organisation and running of the event. We’re looking forward to next year already!
