Wikimedia Community Ireland is an active user group representing all Wikimedians in Ireland. We were officially recognised as an affiliate group on December 8, 2014. We are currently running a number of events, training members, and attending outreach events.

Our Mission

  • 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 said content without the payment of royalties.
  • 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 the island of Ireland.
  • To make use of, encourage the use of, and 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.
