I originally mailed admin at linux.ie with the following

My reply was as follows:

The situation remains very positive for all. We wish to run a national
Linux event but do not wish to impinge on the Laid conference (ILUG) in any
way. We will be glad to lend a hand to your event. It's entirely your call.
Perhaps if you had a subcommittee I could meet and discuss?
