Open Access in Ireland

I am kind of new to Open Access and I am learning quite a lot reading interventions at this unconference (a summary of the different posts with some comments is on my blog). A few days ago I was in Dublin for the workshop Realising the Opportunities of Digital Humanities where they presented the Irish National Open Access Statement, a new document prepared by the National Steering Committee on Open Access Policy. To contribute to this unconference I will discuss the document in reference with what other participants have said.
