*Wiki Loves Monuments 2017*

As many of you will have seen, Ireland’s Wiki Loves Monuments was launched
at Archaeo Fest as part of Heritage Week. This year Ireland’s monuments can
be viewed through Monumental <https://maps.wikilovesmonuments.org/>, as all
of our data is now on Wikidata! You can search by county, see what
monuments have no photo, or if they have an article. Do spread the word to
your photography friends and family. You can find all the information at

*Editing events in TOG Hackerspace*

We held our first open editing event at TOG on 30 August. Some serious
editing got done, and not just in English! We are hoping to make this a
regular event, so do sign up on the TOG Meetup page
<https://www.meetup.com/Tog-Dublin-Hackerspace/>, or follow us on Facebook
<https://www.facebook.com/WikimediaIreland> or Twitter

*Digital Repository of Ireland*

On Tuesday 5 September, we had our first joint event
<http://dri.ie/dri-and-wikimedia-ireland-exploring-cc-licences> with the
DRI in the Royal Irish Academy in Dublin. The workshop looked at Creative
Commons and Public Domain licencing, in particular for those who work in
cultural institutions. It also covered issues around Orphan Works, and the
new EU Directive on Copyright. The next event with the DRI will be in
October, and will focus on how cultural institutions can collaborate with
Wikipedia and its sister projects.
