Hi Geoffrey, welcome to Ubuntu!

When the group (-uk) was started, the reason we called it -uk was that
we wanted to include all of the UK. In fact this was insisted upon :)

The "Britain" on that link you refer to is probably misplaced! We'll get
it changed...

This doesn't stop you setting up a separate Irish or Northern Irish
group if you think that it would be beneficial! However, you are
certainly very welcome on this list!
