Dear Phil, Yours, Sarah.

Dear Denis,

I am delighted to hear of your response in becoming a sponsor of the Fine Gael Golf Classic. I gather this arose through discussions with  Mark FitzGerald. Your very generous sponsorship of £4,000 will be used two-fold, with £1,000 sponsoring a hole and the remaining balance sponsoring the wine for the Gala Dinner. As I am sure Mark already discussed with you, appropriate advertising will be utilised.

I look forward to your attending the dinner on the night which I think  will be an excellent evening.

Again many thanks for your kind support.

Yours sincerely,

Dear Denis,

Following my earlier correspondence last week, regarding our
upcoming Golf Classic, I would be very grateful if you could forward to Fine Gael Headquarters (by Friday 16th September) for the attention of  Ms. Eileen Kelly, a disk with your company’s logo etc. Or alternatively a bromide listing the colours used in your logo. This would greatly enhance the advertisement at each hole which is being made available to our sponsors.

I look forward to seeing you at the Gala dinner that evening.

With kind regards,

Yours sincerely,

Phil Hogan T.D.

Please find enclosed a draft for the Golf on the 16th.

Best of Luck on the day!

I’ll give you a call soon

And that’s politics, folks.
