LibrePlanet Ireland Begins

On this day, the 21st of April, 2022, I formally announce the opening of LibrePlanet Ireland.

What is LibrePlanet?

Quoted from LibrePlanet’s main page:

The LibrePlanet project is a global network of free software activists and teams working together to help further the ideals of software freedom by advocating and contributing to free software.

It is a community project that is supported by the Free Software Foundation (FSF).

How can I join?

Information on how to join and official communication channels can be found on our dedicated LibrePlanet Ireland Page

Why create a new community?

As of writing, there seems to be no active Free Software communities in Ireland.

Technically there is the Irish Free Software Organisation (IFSO) which is affiliated with the Free Software Foundation Europe (FSFE), but according to their mailing lists, there has been no real activity in the past 5 years and it appears that their website hasn’t been updated since 2009.
