Bree Macra na Feirme are certainly keeping old traditions alive in the club. On January 28th, the club turned out in force to support the Novice Debating team of Sarah Byrne, Michael Roche, Jordan Feeley, and Tyler Murphy in the Macra Na Feirme Novice Debating All-Ireland Final in Macroom, Co. Cork.

Having previously beaten a county Clare team in the semi-final, the four debaters faced Banteer Macra in proposing the motion that “Marriage is the End of a Good Time”. The audience enjoyed a lively, close debate, with both sides eliciting waves of laughter from the room.

After a long adjudication, the results were in – Banteer emerged victorious, with Bree taking home the runner’s-up plaques. Although all four Bree debaters are newcomers to the landscape of Macra debating, they benefited from an experienced backroom team of coaches James Byrne and PJ D’Arcy, as well as the support of the 2019 Bree Senior Debating All-Ireland winning team.

The team would like to thank all their supporters for making the long journey into the Rebel County.
