A WOMEN'S soccer team from Macra North County, based in Swords, has made it to the final of the National Dairy Council Indoor Soccer Competiton.

The Fingal Macra ladies made it to the All-Ireland Final of the event held recently at Gormanston College in County Meath. Macra National President, Alan Jagoe, speaking after the event, congratulated everyone who took part. Mr. Jagoe said: 'Competitions like indoor soccer are a great hobby for young people along with being great fun. Macra, along with the NDC, encourages members to get involved in sports as great exercise and a way of meeting new people. 'Indoor soccer is as popular as ever, as seen by the many competitors who battled it out for the coveted titles today. 'Being active is crucial for health and wellbeing and Macra, along with the National Dairy Council, are keen to emphasise the benefits of both exercise and healthy eating. Drinking a glass of skimmed milk after taking part in sports is a great way to rehydrate as a number of research studies indicated.'
