Councils Move to Open Source Software!

I don’t have the details to hand, but it was reported in the Evening Echo and Red FM yesterday, Cork City and County Councils are going to move (all?) their desktop systems to Linux and Open Office over the next few years. I meant to buy the paper but of course it completely slipped my mind. There’s a pdf of yesterday’s Echo on their website but it’ll disappear later today or tomorrow I guess.
The Council expects to save millions of Euro over the next few years but beyond that I don’t have any online links. Can anyone find some information on this?
