Wrong start of the week for Ireland


The start of the week in Ireland is on Monday. However the locale file for Ireland, i.e. /usr/share/i18n/locales/en_IE, seems not to have the flag first_weekday set and defaults to Sunday, which is wrong.
The time section also refers to be originally just a reference to the GB locale, where the flag is correctly set to Monday.

Ok, I did some more research on this: I've learned that all the locale settings are part of glibc and it turned out that some else already filed a bug report. So this is an upstream issue and will hopefully be fixed in a future version of glibc.
