Re: debian-edu in Ireland.
Dia dhuit Brian,
welcome to this list! Thank you, too, for your message; being myself a
teacher who administrates one of Germany's first productive Skolelinux
installations, I reckon it a good idea to use debian-edu as base
system. Additional to its easy administration (with thin clients) and
its high scalability, having an Irish (gaelic) locale could be a real
plus for you.

Well, at this very moment the only backdraw is that skolelinux is still
based on woody/stable. But this is already being changed, so it won't
be a problem much longer.
In Norway, the major activity was also based on some commercial
enterprise (hence skolelinux), so scoil-linux sounds brilliant to me,
as long as locally demanded add-ons go back to the community after
implementation. I suppose that especially the core team of developers
could tell you more for this (I am just a dumb teacher:)
Good luck for your plans,
they sound really f* brilliant!
