While it is still a one-man race for the role of Macra na Feirme president, it seems there is now a third candidate for vice-president in Munster. Limerick dairy farmer John Cremin revealed his intentions to run for the position in an unusual manner.

He posted a teaser video on his Facebook page on Thursday night which had some members speculating that he was going to throw his name in the ring for president.

But he followed up with a video on Friday encouraging people to vote for him to become Munster vice-president.

Corkman Sean Wallace and Kerryman Trevor Coffey are the other two in the Munster race. There are four potential candidates in Leinster and two in the northwest.

Macra has one national president and three vice-presidents who are elected every two years.

No one is officially a candidate until they secure enough nominations from qualifying Macra clubs.
