Joined OpenStreetMap in Jan 2012 and never looked back.
Most of my mapping has been isolated to the City & County of Galway. This will change as Galway nears completion towards a usable map with all major items recorded, to extend out to other areas in Ireland.

Organisation of Mapping Parties
- 23rd March 2013 - Tracing of buildings in Galway City, west of the River Corrib
- Over a dozen people from around the world, including several from Ireland, participated in a MapCraft job to trace every building not already traced. This was anticipated to take over a week to complete, it was completed within 39 hours.
- MapCraft job can be found here
- A video was created by Derick Rethans showing the activity. It can be viewed here
