Hi Everyone,

I have a desire to tidy up the Ireland
<https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Ireland> wiki page a little in the
coming weeks but need some input from y'all/...

Current projects are:

   - osmirl_buildings project: map as many of the 5.5m buildings in Ireland.

Past projects are:

   - Clonmel Heritage Week 2020 project
   - Townlands.ie
   - others? for sure. let's get them listed...

Other "projects" listed on the page:

   - Places
   - Infrastructure
   - Irish Language (Gaeilge)
   - Gaelic games
   - Background Imagery
   - Imports

I would like to suggest that going forward, each project has a clear goal,
1-2 identified leaders and an easy way for others to contribute / join the
effort. Even pet projects are welcome to be listed as long as they meet the
above criteria. Small projects are better than long-lived projects that
keep evolving. It should be acceptable to have lots of small projects based
around a theme (e.g. ensure all towns have both english and irish names
listed; next project is "ensure all rivers have both irish and english
names", etc). Some of the "other" projects above should probably be moved
to a reference section unless there is high-priority mapping required for
some of the elements.

If you have any input, please add to the discussion here
page for the Ireland wiki page).
