Area Final Success
The club members who went forward to represent the club at the recent Area Final did the club proud with their fine performances. Deidre Linehan and Pat sexton competed in the speech contest while Pat sexton also represented the club in the evaluation contest along with Ray Ryan.
The final was hosted by the Failte Club in Charleville and the members made the visiting toastmasters from the other clubs in the area feel most welcome. The contest was chaired by the Area Governor Anne Buckley and the topics master for the evening was Mary Buckley.
Those present on the evening were treated to an excellent selection of speeches on a wide variation of topics. Competition was keen but the winner came from the host club. Geraldine Conway the president of the Failte club was a worthy winner. Pat Sexton of speakeasy was second with a fine speech.
Pat fared one position better in the evaluation contest as he took place first place in what was a very tight contest between the eight contestants. Ray Ryan of the speakeasy club also put in a very strong performance and finished in second place. Pat Sexton will now go forward to represent the Area at the Division final.
The clubs next meeting will take place on this Thursday May 1st at 8pm in the Hibernian Hotel Mallow. Guests are always most welcome and will not be asked to speak. For more information on toastmasters check us out on our website www.speakeasytoastmasters .com or follow us on Facebook or Twitter.
