Kilmeen Macra has had a busy few weeks. Between club exchanges, the moscars dinner dance and sports we have been busy. Kilmeen men qualified for the All-Ireland Basketball final.

Huge congratulations to the cast of Kilmeen Macra who qualified for the next round of the one act Amateur Drama Competition. Kilmeen performed their play ‘Our Man’. The audience were highly entertained throughout the 50 minute performance. Members of the cast included Mary McCarthy, Rachel Sweetnam, Mary Connolly, Sarah Hayes, Adrian Grace and last but not least Seamus Tobin.

The play was directed by Mike Crowley and Stage Manager was Nora Murphy. This would not be possible without the assistance of the back stage crew who also designed the set; the crew included Jer Coakley, Michael O’Regan, Darren Deasy and Finighn O’Donovan. Adrian Grace was awarded best actor, with Mike Crowley receiving Best Director and finally a scene from Kilmeen’s play was awarded the prestigious award from the adjudicators.

Well done to Ballinascarthy Macra who also qualified and commiserations to Clonakilty Macra who put in a sterling performance also. A big congrats to the budding actors and actresses alive in Kilmeen! For more information please see the club Facebook page.
