Bree bowlers in final
The All-Ireland final of Macra's National Dairy Council bowling competition took place recently, with a team from Bree Macra in action. The winners of the competition were Knockraha Macra from Seandun in Cork.
The national final was held in Cosmic Bowling in Tullamore on Sunday, November 15. Hosted by Offaly Macra, the final took place as part of the WR Shaw Queen of the Land festival.
Macra na Feirme National President, Seán Finan, said: 'bowling is a great way to introduce physical activity in a fun and social way. The NDC bowling competition is a popular competition in Macra and I'd like to congratulate every team that took part'.
Being active is crucial for health and well-being and Macra, along with the National Dairy Council, are keen to emphasise the benefits of both exercise and healthy eating. Drinking a glass of skimmed milk after taking part in sports is a great way to rehydrate as a number of research studies indicated.
