been allocated an additional attendee. It was agreed by those in attendance
that SE will be the second attendee.
UCD 23 November 2016-we had approximately 85 students attended the
workshop, with members of the public floating in an out. One thing we
learned was that it is necessary for us to have Wiki Markup handouts for
the students at these types of events. The class did not use the education
extension this year, but RO will find out how many articles were improved.

The focus of 2017 contest will be on the 42% of Irish monuments that do
