   It was decided that a separate 1916 themed WLM category would be
   incorporated into the 2016 contest. It will include sites related to the
   1916 Rising and its notable leaders. SE will create a preliminary list for
   the working group to consult. It is envisioned that this list will
   eventually encompass sites related to the entire revolutionary period of
   the next several years.

   It was agreed that outreach needs to start earlier this year, with
   posters sent to OPW sites as well as libraries, local historical societies,
   ect.

   groups in Wikimedia.
