Two things:

 1) give up on the 3.1_r0 images - they've been superseded by 3.1_r0a
    after a bug was found.
 2) downloading a DVD-sized image can be broken by bugs in HTTP large
    file support at either end. Even if the tools at your end are
    64-bit capable, the apache on ftp.ie.debian.org may not be. I'd
    recommend trying jigdo/bittorrent instead if you can.
