There's now a free software mailing list for Northern Ireland:

And there will be a meeting on January 19th in Belfast.  The meeting is both
the monthly meeting of the Belfast GNU/Linux users group, and a discussion
on the first public draft of GPLv3 which will have been released three days
earlier.  I'll be coming to the meeting straight from the GPLv3 launch
conference, so I can report on that.

The time for the meeting has been set for 19h00.  The location isn't
finalised, but it will be somewhere central in Belfast, probably near to
Queen's University Belfast.  I'll send the info to fsfe-ni as soon as I have
it, and probably here too.

Other topics for the meeting are MythTV, and organising a free software
event for March (probably the 16th).

The mailing list was set up after a number of meetings and discussions in
December where people noted that Northern Ireland was lacking a central
point for inter-group communication.
