i'd really like to see it in a codepage for eire, as oppossed to a
font hack, i'll have a look around as surely somebody else must want
to see this also. There is certainly enough existing printed matter in
the old font so still confused as to why it ever dissappeared and why
there is no codepage (that i can find) for it.
