Ashleigh Tobin was the winner of Wicklow Toastmaster's 'tall tales' competition held last Thursday night in the Grand Hotel, Wicklow.

It was Ashleigh's first foray into this competition and she had the audience spellbound with her speech about 'almost getting away with murder'. Runner up was Will Doyle and both will represent Wicklow in the Area final being held on February 23 and hosted by Greystones Toastmasters. The final will also include speakers from Dun Laoghaire, Bray and Greystones Clubs.

Four great speeches were adjudicated by Contest Chair, Sarah Colfer, providing a hugely enjoyable evening for all who attended.

'The standard was so good it was difficult to separate the speakers,' said Head Judge, John Conlon.
