Come and see the heavy weights of the public speaking world, from clubs across Cork, Kerry and Limerick County, competing at the Division Final. Each contestant has already been victorious in two rounds of the International Speech Contest and is now fighting for the chance to go forward to the District Final, to take on speakers from across Ireland and England. Good luck to local Mallow poet Tom O’Connor, who is representing Speakeasy Toastmasters.

The Evaluation Competition challenges the competitors’ ability to give good advice to a speaker, in a positive and constructive manner. A speech is delivered. All the contestants in the Evaluation Contest leave the room. They return one by one to appraise the speech which was just delivered. The person deemed the best evaluator by the judges, wins the prize. Good luck to distinguished Speakeasy member Pat Sexton, as he represents the club. The event takes place in the historic Hibernian Hotel, and audience members are asked to be seated for 2pm. Tickets for this event are only five euro and available on the door.
We would be delighted to see you at our next club meeting on Thursday 16th April at 8pm. This is a food theme night. Samples of food will be provided, so if you have a delicacy which you would like to share, bring it along!
