Dear Tommy

The Colony

has been selected for


The Prize giving will take place on Friday, 30th September 2011 at 7.30 pm in the Lough Derg Yacht Club and it is very much hoped that you will be able to attend.

I did send the details requested only to get a phone call later telling me that it was a mistake and it was a Highly commended Certificate that i had won instead.     Needless to state i was disappointed


  1. Their loss Tommy, no worries. See you on 6th in Trim library. The Navan are having a Calendar Launch on Wednesday 5th you are more than welcome. Over and out.


  2. Isn't it strange, Tommy? I got a Highly Commended and was Highly Delighted. You got a Highly Commended and were Highly Disappointed.
    Wonder what Haile Selaisse would have made of it all...
