Margaret is a great storyteller and has improved immensely over the period before and after the group formed.

As a new club, the Tallaght Toastmasters are moving very effectively with some very committed and enthusiastic members.

At present the group have 22 members  and mebership continues to increase.

The group are lucky to have members who joined from other clubs offering their invaluable experience to Tallaght Toastmasters, members such as, Gareth Coghlan (VPE), Secretary Marie Grange and Treasurer Mary McHugh.

Members come from all walks of life with one common goal, to improve their speaking ability and confidence.

The group have a very friendly and encouraging environment where no one is forced to do anything.

The group meet in the St Kevin’s Family Resource Centre Kilnamanagh (Girls School) on the second and fourth Monday of each month and new members are always welcome. First meeting is free.

For the first time, some of the groups members will be taking part in area competitions. They will be selected from local competition on September 24.
