Soroptimist Public Speaking
27th January 2020
Following on from her success in the regional competition, Rebecca O'Keeffe represented the school and the Mullingar Soroptimist group in the Leinster Finals on Saturday afternoon last in Drogheda. In the beautiful surroundings on the grounds of St Peter's Church in the centre of the town, Rebecca took on a collection of the best speakers in Leinster.
Once again Rebecca presented her speech flawlessly with measured passion and clarity. However, the second round of the competition, the impromptu round was where competitors had to work hard with 2 minutes preparation for a 2 minute speech on a given topic. The topic was STEM and Rebecca produced an excellent speech.
On the day, Rebecca just missed out on the top two places, agonisingly coming third but once again, Rebecca represented the college and her region to a very high standard. Well done Rebecca from all in the college on such an outstanding achievement.
