Unix Sysadmin and hiker in Dublin, Ireland.
Started mapping for OSM in July 2008. My weapons of choice are Garmin's 60csx and Oregon 550t.
Mostly interested in off-road mapping that would be useful to hikers, bikers, geocachers, megalith hunters and folk of that ilk.
Most of my urban mapping is confined to my local area in South Dublin.
