Altar Boys and Half Measures (Area 17 HS and TT report)

Brendan Foley (Welcoming Committee), Michael Cronin
(Winner – Humorous Speech Contest), Peter Langley (President of
Galtees Toastmasters), Pat Sexton (Winner- Table Topics), Margaret
O'Regan (Contest Chair), Noel O'Connor (Area Governor)

The Area Competition for the North Cork Toastmaster clubs was held at
the Fir Grove Hotel Mitchelstown with Peter Langley of Galtee
Toastmasters presiding and Margaret O'Regan taking on the role of
Contest Chair.

Congratulations to Speakeasy Toastmasters Michael Cronin, who won
first prize at the Area 16 Final of the Humorous Speech Competition.
His speech on life as an altar boy had the audience literally crying
with laughter.  Ladies if you ever have the opportunity to hear
Michael speak, I would recommend that your mascara is waterproof.

Pat Sexton who won first prize at the final of the Area 16 Table
Topics Competition spoke on the topic "glass half full or glass half
empty." Pat it seems is not a man for half measures. His life
philosophy was live it large. In fact, I'd go so far as to say that if
Pat is ever sitting beside you, watch your glass!

Speakeasy Toastmasters Club, Mallow, at the Hibernian Hotel, Mallow,
at 8pm sharp. October 30th. We meet alternate Thursdays. For more
