Who Wants to be a Thousandaire


Leitrim people at home and away are always proud and supportive of their county and the achievements of fellow Leitrim people. This was never more true than when the Leitrim Ladies won the All-Ireland Intermediate Championship in Croke Park in 2007 and the home-coming reception they received throughout the county. Leitrim County Council hosted a civic reception for them and The Leitrim Guardian Committee have awarded the team the prestigious Person of the Year Award for 2008. Further honours have followed with Sarah McLoughlin from Ballinamore receiving an All Star Award.

2008 represents an unprecedented opportunity at Senior level for Leitrim to build on the success of this year and bring further honours to the county. With this in mind, a Leitrim Ladies Supporters Club has been formed to provide the necessary finance to fund their campaign in 2008. We are seeking the support of all Leitrim people at home and abroad to achieve this aim.

We are hosting the popular entertainment night "Who wants to be a Thousandaire" on February 1st. This show is run on a nation-wide basis by Pallas Marketing and attracts large audiences in venues all over the country. The show is completely computerised with 50/50, phone a friend and ask the audience etc.

We are offering businesses the unique opportunity of large screen advertising on two large 8ft x 6ft screens on the night of the show. Each advert will be seen approximately 8 to 10 times and the adverts can include digital images of you or your premises. We will arrange the photographs for you or your can email a pre-set powerpoint advert with corporate logos etc. to Mary Glancy at maryeglancy@eircom.net

The adverts are available at €200 each which is tax allowable, if you pay tax at the high rate the net cost could reduce to €118 approx. Each advertiser will also receive 2 complimentary tickets for the show which is a great nights entertainment.

We are conscious of the demands made on your business for sponsorship but we would urge you to look favourably at this request to get behind the Leitrim Ladies in order that they can compete favourably in 2008 and do lovely Leitrim proud. We attach a short summary on the main benefits of this form of advertising. A member of our committee will contact you in the next few days to discuss this further.

Tickets for the night are on sale throughout the county and can be purchased from any committee member listed below:-
