The Grudge

At the clubs final meeting those present were treated to a very entertaining speech about holding a grudge from toastmaster Brendan Foley. Since Brendan joined the club he has shown his skill at delivering funny speeches while also including a strong message
and this speech was no different. He had the audience smiling and thinking at the same time as he told how the Irish are so good at holding grudges and that in reality it was a complete waste of time in doing so. Ray Ryan gave Brendan a very helpful evaluation.

It was a special night for Marie Lynes as she completed her tenth speech in toastmasters. On reaching this level Marie received her Competent Communicator award. The objective of this speech is to inspire the audience and this was something she certainly achieved with a very moving story. Marie Fitzpatrick as Marie’s evaluator thanked her for delivering a fine speech and for her other speeches over the past few years.

Changing Chains.
At the end of our last meeting our President, Noel O'Connor handed over the chain of office to incoming President, Liam Flynn and outgoing Area Governor, Ann Buckley also handed over the chain to incoming Area Governor, Noel O'Connor

On Tour
On June 1 the club went on our Mystery Tour organised by our President, Noel O'Connor. Leaving Mallow at 1.00pm we headed east to Lismore where we were met by a tour guide and brought to the museum/interpretive center. After a most entertaining and informative audio visual show we wandered around the shop and museum before heading off to the castle gardens where we spend a pleasant and relaxed couple of hours wandering and chatting among the plants and trees.
Then it was off to Mount Mellary for a couple of hours before returning for a lovely meal in Lismore.

The club are now on our summer break and will be returning in early September.
Startup dates will be announced both here and on our website shortly.
