OSI Consultaion Process

Mountaineering Ireland have just published a newsletter in which there is the ability to give feedback to OSI on the recent revamping of all their map types including consolidation / integration of data at all scales, which sounds momentous. A hobby horse (OK, yet another one) of mine and surely of ...

Oileáin News

Oileáin (the soft copy, on-line at www.oileain.org), continues to evolve. It now features 591 islands and my own personal tally is 519.

Oileáin Reprint

Oileáin

Brexit is coming so I bought in a heap of Oileáins to save me registering and form filling and generally being messed about by the big event (I doubt that tariffs will be the big issue?).
