Dear European Central Bank,

- All communications between the ECB (its board, president or
staff) and the Irish Department of Finance (be they staff, politicians, ministers) between November 1, 2013 and December 31, 2013, inclusive.

Yours faithfully,

Philip Connolly

Dear Mr Connolly,
The ECB hereby confirms receipt, on 18 March, of your application for
access to documents as outlined in your below e-mail.
 
Please note that access to ECB documents is governed by Decision
ECB/2004/3 (the unofficial consolidated version of this Decision is
available on the<[1]ECB website>). 
Under Article 6(1) of this Decision a request must be sufficiently precise
as to enable the ECB to identify the requested documents. We therefore ask
you to provide a more precise indication of the particular topic that is
of interest to you and to be as specific as possible.
Upon receipt of your reply, the ECB will assess your request on the basis
of Decision ECB/2004/3.
Yours faithfully,

Dear Mr Connolly,
 
Thank you for your reply of 19 March, which the ECB did not receive but
was identified by chance today via the asktheeu web portal. Please note
that the ECB does not actively monitor this website as requests for the
ECB should be automatically forwarded to the ECB’s dedicated e-mail
address ([1][email address]). This e-mail address is
available for the public on the ECB website and is also given on the
asktheu.org website.
 
According to Decision ECB/2004/3, which governs the ECB’s regime for
access to its documents, the ECB shall provide a reply to your application
within 20 working days. Of course, we will make every effort to respond to
you within that deadline. However, as your request may require the
consultation of third parties, we would like to inform you already at this
stage that we may need to invoke Article 7.3 of the Decision extending the
time limit provided to reply by a further 20 working days. Should this be
the case, we will inform you accordingly.
