Re: events in Ireland, visitors from Kosovo

I've not really come across any significant free software events in
Ireland - perhaps someone else has some suggestions?

Of the other events I've been to, UXDX - https://uxdxconf.com/ was
worthwhile last year, and I'm planning to attend again this year.

It's €450, and has little relevance to Debian, per se, but is good for
general dev and UX thoughts. Perhaps the organisers would be up to
sponsoring their attendance - if you think it might be worthwhile I can
ask them.

Also, if they do come to Dublin we have enough room for one for a few
nights (or perhaps for all three if we kicked #1 son out of his large
room :-).
