A great night was had by all at last night’s Area 3 Final of the Humorous Speech and Table Topics Competition hosted by the Talking Heads TM Club at the Garryvoe Hotel, East Cork. A very large crowd attended a meeting hosted by Talking Heads President Chris Dunne, and Contest Chair John Colbert. A lively and entertaining Topics Session(s) was directed by Sheila McGovern.
But the highlight of the evening was the competitions and first out for Blarney Toastmasters Ted Mellamphy with a speech entitled ” My Wife is a perfectionist” performed brillantly and secured 2nd place behind a lovely funny speech by local Eleanor Herlihy ” It’s not you ” were she recalled a day when she went to buy a new dress for a wedding with the ” help” of some family members !
Following on from his successful Club Night victory, TM Mike McGrath, last to speak of 5 contestants took the Winners Honours again in the Table Topics Competition and will now go forward to the Divisional Final to be held at the Rochestown Park Hotel on Sunday Oct 19th at 2pm.
A large group of members travelled to Garryvoe to support Ted and Mike and thier support was greatly appreciated.
