Updating European Election voting guide for Ireland

Patents: Ciaran O’Riordan just posted a message to ILUG, regarding how concerned voters in Ireland can use their votes in tomorrow’s European elections to prevent legalising patenting of software ideas in Europe. Here’s the scoop:

Area Vote #1 and #2
East Avril Doyle Eoin Dubsky
South Brian Crowley Gerard Collins
North WestSean O’Neactain
Dublin Patrica McKenna Ivana Bacik

Note the main thing I got wrong — some sitting MEPs from Fianna Fail and FG actually voted the right way! So a vote for FF in this case, is a vote against software patents. (I never thought I’d be saying that, but there you go ;)
