Clonmel Toastmasters will be hosting the Division D Final of the Speech & Evaluation competition which will take place in the Park Hotel on Sunday 21st April at 2:30pm.
There are currently eighteen Toastmaster clubs in Division D with over 445 members. In the northern part of the division we have clubs in Maynooth, Naas, Kildare and Athy.
In Area 40 we have clubs in Portlaoise, Carlow and Kilkenny. In county Waterford we have DLS Communicators, Waterford City, Tramore and Dungarvan while our own Area 27 includes Thurles, Cashel and Clonmel. Finally in county Wexford we have clubs in Gorey, Enniscorthy, Elavon Arklow and Wexford.
The winner of the speech and evaluation contests from the five area contests within the division will compete in the Division D final.
The person placed first in each contest will go forward to represent Division D in Torquay on the 10th to the 12th May. Freddie Daniells District 71 Governor serving the UK and Ireland will attend the event.
Our own Thos O Neill (speech) and James Prendergast (evaluation) Area 27 contest winners from Clonmel Toastmasters are in contention.
We hope that all present and past members as well as anyone who is curious about Toastmasters will attend what should be a cracking Sunday afternoon of top quality public speaking all for just €5 which includes tea/coffee and biscuits.
It is highly advisable to be there about 2pm which is when the contestants receive their briefing. More details on www.clonmeltoastmasters.com
