Meath Macra raised nearly €5,000 for the Irish Cancer Society last year

Meath Macra na Feirme will brave the elements on Christmas Eve as they prepare to take to the streets of Enfield to fundraise for charity.

The Meath Macra Live Crib will return to Enfield on 24th December 24th for its fifth year to raise money and awareness for Meath Hospice Homecare Movement.

Almost €15,000 raised

In a statement to That’s Farming, a spokesperson, said: “The live crib was a massive success last year with €4,755 being raised for the Irish Cancer Society, thanks to the hard work and dedication of Meath Macra members, community groups and parishioners.”

“To date, almost €15,000 has been raised by the event for various charities.”

The Live Crib will run from 11am to 5pm on Christmas Eve outside Enfield's Community Hall.

Throughout the day, there will be refreshments, face-painting, Christmas carol singing, and music from Enfield Comhaltas and Hotwell Choir, as well as the main attraction, live animals, according to the Macra club.

In addition to this, there will be nativity characters to complete the live crib.

“Over the past few years, the live crib has grown in popularity among all age groups. The animals, in particular, Carlos, the pygmy goat and the very friendly donkeys, have made their way into the heart of the community.”

“This Christmas Eve, Meath Macra are hoping to exceed last year’s grand total and invite all to come along to support Meath Macra na Feirme and Meath Hospice Homecare Movement.”

For every €10 donated on the Meath Macra Live Crib GoFundMe page, one entry to the raffle will be received - competition ends on December 22nd.
