Dear Advertisers and Decision Makers,

We are well aware how confusing it is today to think of advertising and promotions.
Our economy and business practices are changing constantly. We have a simple
proposal for you backed by our great track record.

Buy any size ad or package from us.
We will include a FREE  ad of equal size.

We will also work harder than any other media company
to make sure that you are happy with the result.

In the face of the worst business climate in a generation;
we have prospered and expanded!
The reason is clear.
at a very reasonable rate.

Thank you for your interest in the Irish News and Entertainment.


January of 2010 will mark our
18th year

as the premier
Irish Newspaper

January-February Issue, we are going to expand

Distribution: No other Irish/British paper has the reach we have:
FREE copies of Irish News are delivered to all of our advertisers,
to numerous pubs, retailers, import shops, news-stands, libraries, and
social clubs and organizations.
In addition, our niche focus on: "Clusters of Friends"*
"Venue Marketing & Distribution"** delivers outstanding reach for our advertisers.
We have more paid subscribers than ANY other Southern California Irish
or British paper.***

Many regular advertisers tell us Irish News delivers the best return
on their advertising $$,
bar none.

Buy one ad and get one ad FREE.

That's right...TWO ADS for the price of one!

We are seeking representatives and writers to cover
Irish Events and people
throughout the US.
We Irish Americans are almost 40 Million Strong and
our goal is to raise the

Irish Consciousness of America.

* Clusters of Friends: We have been printing and distributing Irish News
for 17 years. In that time we have
built up a strong network of
FREE distribution outlets, including many locations proximate to our
regular advertisers; thus "Clusters".

** Venue Marketing and Distribution: We track Irish and Celtic Events
throughout Arizona and California and distribute Irish News at those events.
We have many exclusive agreements and are the Irish paper for many
concerts and fairs, incl. the annual Irish Fair at FAIRPLEX.
We know we can
replicate this concept  throughout the country as we grow.
