LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
RADIO & T.V. INTERFERENCE
Dear Mr. O'Hanlon,
I wish to reply to the letters you have received concerning interference to radio and television in the Donnybrook area.
The Office of the Director of Telecommunications (ODTR) is the agency charged with investigating such matters and I am responsible for the section that deals with this. I was unaware of the problems that the residents of Donnybrook were suffering until these letters were brought to my attention this morning.
I have been in touch with RTE who have informed me that their records only indicate one complaint of interference by this station in October last year, which ceased after an approach by local RTE engineers.
The Department of Communications no longer deals with these matters as it ceased to exist in 1997. Most of its functions were transferred to the ODTR and the Department of Public Enterprise.
If any Donnybrook residents are suffering interference I would be happy to speak with them. I can be contacted on my direct number below, or by email at: email@example.com. Alternatively you can write to me at the address below.

CAN YOU HELP US?
I am writing on behalf of Warwick Womens Football club. We are
going to Ireland for our tour from Saturday 17th til Tuesday 20th
March. We have had our friendly matches which were due to be
played on grass cancelled due to the foot and mouth crisis. We
were wondering whether you could help us in finding someone to
play and somewhere to play indoors?
We are of average standard and would be happy to play 5, 6, 7 or 11-a-side.
I realise this is short notice but would be grateful if you could in any way help us out.
President, Warwick University Womens Football Club. Lauin@csv.warick.ac.uk
