    Military History/Genealogy of Ireland.
    Provides a forum for discussion of all aspects of pre-1922 Irish military history and military genealogy. This includes all forces in Ireland during the British period whether of the regular British Army, the Militia, Yeomanry, Auxiliary or the Irish Volunteer Army, the Citizen Army and similar. The emphasis is on Military Genealogy and the post Treaty period will not be included. Topics can include the history of any of the above, their uniforms, badges, equipment, medals etc. as well as the actions they participated in. Some of the discussion will require an enormous amount of discipline. Since we will be discussing legitimate Military History, the words 'murder(ers)' and 'terrorist(s)' are not allowed. It is hoped to encourage the study of this area and especially the documentation of those who served in these forces.

    - to handle queries about untraceable townlands or parishes etc., discuss modern and medieval placename issues, bring amateur enthusiasts and experts together, raise awareness of issues like the near total lack of recording and study of Irish field names etc., and above all to drag together all those disparate groups producing digital parish & townland maps and placename database materials like the awe-inspiring IREAtlas to begin a coordinated effort to digitally map out Ireland's placenames, making huge volumes of accurate data available free. Shortly be a website tied to the discussion group, and acting as a home/ gateway to whatever datasets or articles we produce or can find elsewhere on the 'net.
