District 71 
District 91 


As we begin a NEW Toastmaster Year, let me tell you that we are now in Region 10 of Toastmasters International.  Area 9 is in Division F of District 71 of Region 10.

Division F covers the Irish Northwest, West and Midlands, with 5 areas.

The Division Director for 2018-19 is Mr Pat Croke of Galway and I am the Area Director for this year.  I am from Athlone Club.

Currently, Area 9 has 5 Clubs; Athlone, Cavan, Longford, Mullingar and Tullamore. Hopefully, we may add to that list by the end of the year.

Join with like-minded people in a safe atmosphere as you strive to improve public-speaking skills, presentation skills and have some fun while doing so.

Athlone has one meeting in July on 24th (8:00pm).  All clubs in the area are resting in August, to resume in September.

'Skills can be taught. Character you either have, or you don't have.' - A. Bourdain.

Area Director, Area 9, 2018/19



Welcome! I am Somesh Kumar , the new Area 9 Director for 2017-2018.  I have been a member of Toastmasters for 3 years. We are a fun loving and supportive Area within District 71, Division F comprising of five clubs situated across the Counties of Cavan, Longford, Offaly and Westmeath.

Club Mission: To provide a supportive and positive learning experience in which members are empowered to develop communication and leadership skills, resulting in greater self-confidence and personal growth.

Why not come to a meeting and find out how Toastmasters can improve your communication and leadership skills? 

Athlone Toastmasters meet on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of the month at 8:15pm in the Prince of Wales Hotel, Athlone.

Cavan Toastmasters meet on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of the month at 8.15pm in the Cavan Crystal Hotel, Cavan.

Longford Toastmasters meet on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of the month at 8:30pm in the Longford Arms Hotel, Longford.

Mullingar Toastmasters meet on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of the month at 8:30pm in the Greville Arms Hotel, Mullingar.

Tullamore Toastmasters meet on alternative Thursdays of the month at 8:30pm in the Tullamore Court Hotel, Tulamore.

All the clubs above thrive on receiving visitors and will make everyone feel comfortable during their visit. All seek to achieve the same goals of helping members develop their speaking ability and confidence as well their leadership skills. It is the members who define the character of a club and as the members are different so are the clubs. Why not visit them all to see which one suits you.
