Nice'n Easy Members visit Speak Easy

Very special guests

It was a special occasion for the club last Thursday night as we were privileged to have two guest speakers from the Nice and Easy toastmasters club. This club is based in the Cope Foundation in Mallow and over the years it has always sent excellent speakers to the Speakeasy Club.

The two speakers on this occasion were Patrica Coleman and Michael Broderick. Patrica gave us a very informative and educational speech on the history of Buttevant town. It was a speech that was very well researched and rehearsed and was complimented on this by her evaluator Marie Lyons. Michael gave a very appropriate speech for the time of the year as he gave us his reflections on an autumn scene and also added that it will not be long before we get to enjoy spring again. Tony O’Regan gave Michael a very helpful evaluation. The club president thanked toastmaster Jerry Mulcahy who helped the two speakers prepare for the meeting.

The club will host a special event on this Thursday the 21st of November in the Hibernian Hotel. It is the annual Schools Public Speaking Contest, which will have transition year students from local schools taking part. The contest will begin at 8pm and finish at 10pm. Admission is free and everybody is welcome to attend.

The following Thursday on the 28th November the club will have its own meeting with a great selection of speakers appearing on the program. The meeting will begin at 8pm in the Hibernian Hotel and guests present will not be asked to speak.
