A while back Michael Lowry had a competition to win tickets to the Oxygen festival.
Was on the Youth Zone of Minister Noel Dempseys Website and came upon this opportunity to win a ‘school pack

If you feel we are missing something on our website, please feel free to write into us with ideas. Also if you have stories to tell the Minister write in … and you could be in with a chance of winning a school pack.
Here are the details below:
Department of Transport
44 Kildare Street, Dublin 2

So would Noel be opening childrens stories and suggestions for his website himself in the Department of Transport?
And what a prize too. Its hard to tell from the picture, I wonder if there is a Noel Dempsey picture or Fianna Fail logo on the schoolbag?
Also what mysteries could be inside? a Noel Dempsey pencil case?


Johnny Brady, Noel Dempsey -Fianna Fail -Meath West 2007 February 19, 2010

Euro 2004- Seamus Kirk mock GAA Programme. September 15, 2009

6th of June 2004 outside Croke Park… Westmeath are playing Dublin and Kildare play Wexford. Seamus Kirk and his team give out mock programmes. The Kildare and Westmeath lineups are listed as well as a message from Seamus in the middle, with a play on a slogan used by the Bank Of Ireland in its GAA themed ads.

Seamus uses the leaflet to copy an article from the Sunday Independent which tells the reader of his political career, his triumph over adversity and his GAA pedigree both on and off the field. You would do well to have something more tailored to your potential audience.

It’s very clever too as it covers a team from both matches and may well be looked at for the afternoon. Given that Westmeath beat Dublin that day (on their way to their first ever Leinster title), it may well have been held on to by a few Westmeath fans. Sport is theme used by many politicians to try to get the voter interested. (more on that another day).

You may also notice that the leaflet is printed by BCR press. (On the List of TDs expenses at    BCR  contribute over €10,000 to Fianna Fail Meath TDs  Noel Dempsey and Johnny Brady).
