I should have posted this a few weeks ago but never got around to it. is a direct port of the mySociety site TheyWorkForYou to the Houses of the Oireachtas in Ireland. I wrote the required parser and reconfigured a bunch of stuff from the original published-but-rather-unportable codebase. People can now search the transcripts effectively for the first time, follow representatives by RSS, and set up keyword email alerts. It's getting quite heavy use already, not least from inside the Irish parliament and government.

Great stuff. I love TheyWorkForYou, so it's fantastic seeing the principle being adopted for other countries.
