Dea-scéal ó Apple: tá siad ag obair ar luibheanchlár nua dúinn, toisc
go bhfuil gá le "locale" Éireannach anois nach bhfuil an punt agus a
chomhartha £ in úsáid in Éirinn, ach an eoró agus a comhartha Ð.

Good news from Apple: they're working on a new keybaod for us,
because there's a need for an Irish locale now that the punt and the
£ sign is no longer in use in Ireland, but rather the euro and the Ð
sign.

Níl a fhios againn go fóill cathain an mbeidh an luibheanchlár ar
fáil i Mac OS X, ach tá leagan curtha ar fáil agam atá oiriúnach do
Mac OS 7 trí Mac OS 9.

We don't knwo exactly when the keyboard will be available in Mac OS
X, but I have made a version available which is suitable for Mac OS 7
through Mac OS 9.

Tá difríochtaí beaga idir an luibheanchlár "Irish" seo agus an
luibheanchlár "Gaeilge" a chruthaíos i 1990, agus an luibheanchlár a
chruthaigh Mícheál Fada Mac Brádaigh dá "Irish Accessories" i 1989.
Níl róthábhachtach na difríochtaí seo; baineann siad le haicinn,
comharthaí, 7rl. Tá na sínte fada ar fáil i gcónaí leis an luibhean
Option.

There are small differences between this "Irish" keybaord and the
"Gaeilge" keyboard which I created in 1990, and the keyboard that
Mike Brady created for his "Irish Accessories" in 1989. These
differences are not very important; they have to do with accents,
symbols, etc. The acute accents are still available with the Option
key.

Tá níos mó eolais ginearálta ar fáil ag
http://www.evertype.com/celtscript/celt-keys.html agus tá eolas i
dtaobh an luibheanchlár nua ar fáil ag
http://www.evertype.com/celtscript/ga-keys-x.html.

More general informaiton is available at
http://www.evertype.com/celtscript/celt-keys.html and information
about the new keyboard is available at
http://www.evertype.com/celtscript/ga-keys-x.html.
