The 13th Annual AIB Northwest Macra Kings and Queens event took place in a packed Sligo Park Hotel on Saturday the 18th of January, the highlight of the Northwest Macra calendar!

18 Kings and Queens from throughout the Northwest came to Sligo to compete for the title of the "AIB Northwest Macra King and Queen".

The winner was announced that night on front of a record breaking crowd by i Radios Dave Duke. Rhythm and Sticks who hail from Co. Longford then took to the stage and had everybody on the dance floor into the late hours where Dave Duke took over for the closing set.
