Did my PPL in OBA back in 1999. There and back in 21 days, with a few days to spare at the end. Back then the cost was STG?2000 all in.
I would highly recommend doing 5-10 hours flying with an instructor on return to Ireland, just to get used to the bureaucracy and mess that is Irish procedures.
He was very laid back and friendly and ill always remember him with a group of students around him giving them tips on their long Q-XC just before they all headed off!(Me included!!)
Presumably there's a contingency plan and more planes will arrive at some point or the liberty's will go back into service.

Bummer for you though Steve, first the weather and now this. Well at least you will learn all about the joys of carb heat and how to navigate without that all singing GPS system. Sucks having to relearn an aircraft during early solo but it'll stand to you. Also not worrying about prop strikes will help with building confidence. The 150's are tough old birds, you can really hammer them in and they'll just keep going. Once you get the hang of flying them you'll find that they are actually quite easy to fly and you can put them on the numbers most of the time.
