A Very Busy Meeting


A Very Busy Meeting

Marie Lyons took it all in her stride as she chaired one of the clubs busiest meetings with six speeches delivered on the night. She also made time for David Roche to conduct a very interesting topics session which had members thinking and speaking on their feet. This was David’s first time doing the role and he had a wide variation of topics from JFK to trade unions.

The first speech on the night was delivered by Brendan Foley. It was a very informative and educational regarding the month of November. He challenged us to think of the month not a dreary one, but a time for reflection as our ancestors used to treat it. Two of the other speeches on the night had a somewhat common theme. Helsa Giles gave us a demonstration on how to make a coffee cake, but not alone that, she brought a sample for everyone to enjoy at the tea break. The members are now hoping that all of Helsa’s future speeches will be about different types of cakes.

Mary Moynihan speech titled “The Daily Grind” presented all the different information regarding what was the maximum amount of coffee that a person should consume in a day. In her very entertaining way she let us know that there was no possible way she could function on the five hundred ml’s that some of the research was suggesting as the maximum daily intake. More information on the other three speakers next week.

The clubs next meeting will be our Christmas meeting which will take place on Thursday 12th December. Everybody is welcome to attend. The meeting will begin at 8pm in the Hibernian Hotel and guests present will not be asked to speak.
