Macra in the parish has always been a very strong organization.
However in the second half of the 90's Macra folded and remained
that way until the end of November 2001.
Holding onto the name of the previous branch, Crookstown Macra
has re-grouped and is once again proving to be a force to
be reckoned with.
On the 26th November 2001, 13 young people ranging in age
from 17 to 35 got together and formed a new club in the area.
Within four months the club had grown to a massive 31 members,
which is an extraordinary achievement for a new club. These
members come from every corner of the parish and beyond. Everyone
is enjoying the fun and the crack that has been generated
in the club and at the various competitions.
The Crookstown Club meet on a
monthly basis in the Cornerstone, Crookstown. Meetings are
advertised on the Local Parish Newsletter.
