The finals of International Miss Macra 2013 were announced last night, causing a massive headache for distinguished judges, Joan Pollard Carew of Michael’s Jewellers, Deirdre Crowe Manageress of Dundrum House Hotel and Declan Ryan President of Clonoulty/Rossmore Macra na Feirme.

The event attracted an estimated six thousand visitors over the 3 days, while twenty two highly intelligent and very talented beauties took part, all competing for the coveted title “International Miss Macra 2013.”

Judges, following 3 days of painstaking investigation and evaluation, eventually unanimously agreed on their winners, namely Miss Gemma Goulding (Winner International Miss Macra 2013) with Miss Eimer Guiney (Avondhu, Cork) & Miss Louise Ballantyne (Dublin) both worthy Runners-Up, in this 4 day festival event.

Miss Macra organising Festival committee, led by chairman Mr Donnacha Ryan, would like to send an enormous ‘Thank You’ to all their sponsors, host families and local businesses who continue year after year to be generous supporters of the festival.  In particular world famous Coolmore StudDundrum House Hotel, Michael’s Jewellers Thurles, Tipperary Co-Op, FBD Thurles and Gleeson Concrete.

Something Worthy Of Note: This year’s Clonoulty / Rossmore International Miss Macra organising committee were all under the age of 23 years and are to be truly congratulated for their professionalism in staging this event, which each year continues to get bigger and better, despite staging costs annually, which are in excess of €20,000.

(Wonder if Ireland’s Department of Finance would be interested in seeking their assistance, in an effort to get this country back on its feet.)
