GLAM stands for Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums. Wikimedia Community Ireland encourages all Irish institutions to make their digital collections open to the public. We also look to develop long-term partnerships with such institutions, to place such open practices at the centre of their work, which allows for deeper and more meaningful engagement with projects such as Wikipedia and Wikimedia Commons. Our facilitators have run editing events in the National Museum of Ireland, the Science Gallery, and the Library of Trinity College Dublin. We have also partnered with the Digital Repository of Ireland to achieve our joint goals on the access to digital collections in Ireland.
In the early 2000’s the Edgeworthstown Heritage and Historical Group published a history of your parish. It’s been out of print since 2005. Last year i turned the contents into a wiki. It features a history of every house and business in the parish between 1901 and 2000 and included over 800 photos. I don’t know if if this is of interest but the link to it is below. The search could be better but there is a lot of information there.
