Glanmire Macra members recently took part in its most longstanding charity event – winter woodcutting. The event has taken place on an annual basis for almost 30 years, with the club paying visits to a constantly growing and changing list of between 40 and 50 local residents.

A different club member hosts the event each year, and this year it took place on the O’Callaghan farm in Scatbarry, Watergrasshill. Members of the club were on site for most of the day, with chainsaws and axes, cutting and bagging blocks for delivery.
