Teams from Mountmellick, Nenagh, Callan, Athboy and Killarney Macra Clubs will compete for two spots at this year’s national finals which will be held on Saturday, February 1.

Laois Macra would like to take this opportunity to wish all those participating on the day the very best of luck, particularly Mountmellick Macra.
