Seandun

Seandun Macra na Feirme members gathered at the Fitzgerald's Vienna Woods Hotel, Glanmire for their annual titles night to select representatives for Mr Personality, Miss Macra, Queen of the Land, and Miss Blue Jeans.

The contestants were interviewed individually by three judges and then went to do an on stage interview. The ladies were interviewed by Gerard O'Reilly, and the men were interviewed by former Miss Blue Jeans winner Catriona O'Connor. The judges on the night were Macra na Feirme presidential candidates Aisling Lewis and Kieran O' Dowd, with current Macra President Alan Jagoe.

The judges faced a tough challenge with talents such as singing, guitar playing and poetry writing to choose from. Finally a decision had to be made and the results were as follows.

Seandún Mr Personality 2013: Sean Keegan (Glanmire)

Seandún Queen of the Land 2013: Kathleen Fitzgerald (Glanmire )

Seandún Miss Blue Jeans 2013: Sarah O' Connell (Glanmire)

Seandún Miss Macra: Meig Collins (UCC)

The very best of luck to the four winners who will represent Seandún in the national rounds of the various competitions. Special thanks to Sean Keegan and Helen O' Keeffe Seandún Macra regional Competition officers for organising a successful night.
