Our first meeting of the new season was held last Tuesday night in Blarney Woolen Mills Hotel. The meeting was of a more informal nature than usual as an invitation had been extended to the public to come along. We had a great attendance of existing members together with several new faces and enjoyed a very lively and entertaining evening.
Our new President, Jerome O’Donovan, extended a warm welcome to everyone and Kit Deaney as Toastmaster was par excellence in settling us all back into the new season. Bernadette Mannix as Topicsmaster provided a very entertaining topics session with a bag of interesting props and Ed O’Mahony’s demonstration speech DDIY had us all laughing! The award for Best Topic went to Dan Mullane.
The Humourous Speech and Topics contest will take place at our next meeting on Tuesday 25th September. I hope to see you all there on the night.
