John Lonergan To Be Guest Of Thurles Toastmasters

Mr John Lonergan, retired former Governor of Mountjoy Prison, will be the guest of Thurles Toastmasters on Wednesday next, October 18th, 2017, at an event to which everyone is invited to attend.

The event which will take place in the Anner Hotel, Dublin Road, Thurles, begins sharp at 8.00pm.

The occasion will take the format of an information evening with the emphasis being placed on the following headings: –

Personal Development.
Leadership Skills.
Communication Skills.

This is, most certainly, one event in the Thurles Calendar, that should not be missed. Indeed Parents, Teachers, Community Youth Leaders, and Transition Year Students, will truly derive great benefit from their attendance on the night.

A native of Bansha, Co. Tipperary; Mr Lonergan first entered the prison service in 1968, before retiring in 2010, having spent 42 years, in total, within the service; 24 of which were as the most senior prison officer in Ireland.

During those prison service years, he witnessed human nature at its worst and sometimes, quite unexpectedly, at its best, leading to his developing a perceptive understanding, not just of human nature but of Irish society as a whole.

In relation to the planned information evening on Wednesday October 18th next; do keep in mind that Mr Lonergan is a born storyteller. Be assured that no statement, generated as part of his debate, will be answered in a simple pragmatic manner. Instead be confident that each snippet of information doled out, will be accompanied by a charming anecdote, thus ensuring the listener will truly enjoy the nights discussion.

Admission to the event on Wednesday next costs €10.00 for Adults and €5.00 for Students.
