Hi Stephen,

Here's a quick map of what's in Logainm: http://imgur.com/RFOP30Q

As you can see they have a little bit of data for the North, but it's
nearly entirely "Republic only". Alas.

Maybe when we import it, we can give them a dump (in their format) of
townlands (etc) for NI? Or if we please logain, then maybe Placenames
NI might be encouraged to open some data?
