understand the best-practice tagging, namely a relation with
type=boundary boundary=administrative admin_level=10 place=locality
locality=townland name=Foostown.

wether mapping inside that area has reached a certain level.

Sounds like there is going to be a townland mapping tutorial there. It
would be nice to update
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Ireland/Boundaries with all the
townland-mapping info.
