MapRoulette could be one way to go. You don't need to set up your own
instance, merely upload tasks to the existing hosted version. MR has
the option to "pass" on a task that is undoable. However we'd have to
explain to people how to get and read the maps. Knowledge of Irish
placenames is very helpful for reading the old maps.

We have enough trouble with Germans thinking our tertiary roads are
dirt paths, without having to explain how to read Lough
Derreenadavonia of a bad scan from 100 years ago. :)
