As the recognised affiliate of the Wikimedia Foundation in Ireland, Wikimedia Community Ireland promotes the creation, promotion, and dissemination of free knowledge.
Our mission is:
• To aid and encourage people to collect, develop and disseminate educational, cultural, and historic content in the public domain or under a license that allows everyone to freely use, distribute and modify that content.
• To encourage public and private galleries, libraries, archives and museums on the island of Ireland to make their holdings more broadly and freely available, and to collaborate with these institutions in an effort to preserve the heritage of Ireland.
• To educate people in the use of free and open source information resources, in any form, for the advancement of education.
• To encourage the development and release of these materials in the languages of the island of Ireland including but not limited to English and Irish.
Wikimedia Community Ireland, established in 2014, is a non-profit, volunteer-driven organisation.
