Camross Macra na Feirme are celebrating on the double today after two incredible successes.

Yesterday afternoon, their hurlers were crowned All-Ireland Macra champions and then later that evening, another title was won as one of their members was named Mr Personality of the year.

The day began with the annual hurling tournament where Camross reached the semi final.

There, they took on Donaghmore and triumphed by 6-9 to 2-3.

This advanced them to the final where Kilkenny opponents stood in their way.

But Camross were ruthless and won the decider by 3-1 to 0-2 against Callan to be crowned champions.

From there, it was on to the annual Mr Personality Festival in Kilkenny where Anthony Culleton represented Camross.

And he fought off fierce competition to be crowned champion and Mr Personality of the year.

Thanks to Oisin Bennett and Danielle Thompson who captured all the action from the day and we have compiled it into the video before.
