Geraldine giving her speech on "how she's lost her best friend" — with Geraldine Kennedy at The Heritage Killenard.
Portarlington's public speakers had another great night recently at their Toastmasters meeting in Killenard when the star was Donal Cahill .
Donal enthralled the group with his amazing topics marathon which gave everyone who wanted the opportunity to speak on a wide range of topics for one to two minutes.
Congratulations to Gaynor Deacy for her first time as Toastmaster chairing the meeting in her own friendly way, to Noreen Diver for an excellent first time evaluation, to Joanne Molloy for her bewitching tongue teaser.
Edel Quinn also stood out for her debonair word of the day and well done also to Geraldine Kennedy and Mark Bastow for their speeches. Geraldine took us through swopping your couch for running shoes and Mark gave an amusing tale of why it sometimes pays to be late.
The star of the night was
