Devils Bit Macra na Feirme Club Notes
- County Officer Training
On the 6th and 7th of September last six Devil’s Bit Macra na Feirme members travelled to Killarney to participate in County Officer Training. The weekend involved a range of talks for the different county officers. Members were given useful advice and support on how to carry out their roles within the county. They then took part in a range of team building exercises. A banquet dinner allowed Macra na Feirme members from all over the country meet. The weekend also involved a trip to Torc Waterfall. Devil’s Bit Macra members picked up some useful advice and tips during the weekend which they can use within their own club in Devil’s Bit. Thanks to all our members who attended the training.
