About Our Club

On 30 November 2019, we had yet another great meeting of Bishopstown Toastmasters.  Acting club President Kevin Walsh opened the meeting and handed it over to Toastmaster Ros Longwill, who was assisted by Timekeeper Marian O’Mahony.

            The first prepared speech was an Icebreaker delivered by Christina Donaldson, who spoke eloquently on the title ‘The Painting of My Life’ and was followed by Conor Donovan’s interpretive reading of the monodrama ‘Mad as Hell’.  Finally Damian Loftus undertook the second assignment from the Storytelling manual, telling an original story based on a personal experience. 

            Kay-Ti Tan next carried out the role of Poetmaster, followed by an inventive Topics session from John Keating in which members had to speak on their suitability for various careers.  Josip dell’Olio took on the role of General Evaluator, assisted by evaluators Ronan Donovan, Kevin Walsh and Tony Hayes.  In her role as Grammarian Carol O’Donovan challenged the meeting to focus on ‘Gratitude’ as the word of the day.

            We were particularly honoured during this meeting to welcome our Area Director, Darren Burnett, as a visitor to our club.  All those who took on roles during the meeting carried them out excellently, and we particularly thank and commend those who took on roles for the first time.  Thanks also to everyone who attended, and to the staff of Bishopstown Library for their wonderful and patient support.

            Our next meeting is on Saturday 7 December, at the usual time of 11 a.m.  If you can, please arrive a few minutes early.  As always, guests are cordially invited to attend.  Guests will not be called upon to deliver a speech or topic, but they are very welcome to participate in the Table Topics session by raising their hands.  Please note that the Library has asked the club not to enter the room before 10.45 a.m., and endeavour to abide by this request.

            See you all soon!

The Toastmasters Mission
A statement of shared values

Every Toastmasters club shares the same mission, clearly defined in the following mission statement:

We provide a supportive and positive learning experience in which members are empowered to develop communication and leadership skills, resulting in greater selfconfidence and personal growth.

Through this mission, each Toastmaster gains a clear understanding of the club's purpose, and the organization as a whole benefits from a shared set of values and goals.
