Portlaoise Toastmasters meet on the second and fourth Monday each month in the Killeshin Hotel at 8pm.

At their last meeting, Rachel Roche delivered a speech entitled, ‘All I am I owe to my mother’. Rachel owes her zest for life to her mother and she hopes she makes her proud.

Mark Bastow brought his vast experience to the table, delivering an excellent speech on his gliding experience in his youth.

Ger Rowney spoke about how he lost all the watches he received as gifts after a short period of time. Could this be linked to what he referred to as his own tardiness?

Mary Heaney as topics master got people speaking about what really bugs them. Her own gripe was the 3” gap in the curtains in women’s changing rooms, while Meree O’Sullivan’s was ‘Princess on Board’ car stickers.

The next meeting is on November 11.
