Bloggorah mentions Politics In Ireland. Woo!

But damn damn, Treasa is leaving us. I have lots to say about Treasa’s contributions to the blogging community but I’m quite snowed under with other things right now. A proper post will be made on Sunday. We’ll miss you Treasa!

Blogging the Election: EUR250 sponsorship slots now available

Thursday, October 5th, 2006

Sponsorship slots of EUR250 have now opened up for Blogging the Election. We’re still in the red for the conference and some unplanned costs are the reason but are part and parcel of events. The ERU500 slots are too rich for some companies so we’ve created new EUR250 slots.

What do you get for this?

Your company name will be mentioned at the start and end of the event in the thank yous. Your logo will be on the screens behind the podium during the intervals between speakers and your company name and logo will be mentioned on the website.

A EUR500 slot will get you the above plus you’ll be the sponsor of a section and this will be pointed out before the section starts. Of course we also have the EUR2000 venue sponsorship slot still available.

Thank you to Sensorpro, Digiweb and Technofutures who have sponsored the event so far. It’s very much appreciated!

In fact ah d’Bertles

Questions and Answers – October 2nd

Monday, October 2nd, 2006

Myself and Cian will be in the audience at Questions and Answers tonight. We’ll wave and look like we’re supporting someone in Winning Streak. Cian won’t bring the banner I made saying “C’mon Mary, spin it for de parish.” You Never know, maybe a question about politics and blogs will get asked or “Blogging the Election” will get name dropped.

On the panel will be Noel Dempsey, Liz O’Donnell, Trevor Sargent, Richard Bruton and Eileen Gleeson.
