Although a small WikiProject, the Gaelic games project serves a great array of sports native to Ireland. Gaelic games include Gaelic football and hurling, both of which generally take place in Ireland, the games' homeland. Despite its size, the project is quite active, as Gnevin tells us.
Tell me about how you got involved with Wikipedia.
I couldn't recall why I get involved, but a quick look back at my earliest edits found that I started by removing original research and points of view, but at the time I didn't realise that was what I was doing. I was just looking at Gaelic Athletic Association articles and thinking, "hey, that's not right".
What types of article do you generally edit in relation to the project, for example, players, clubs?
That's one of the joys of the Wikipedia project: you don't have to have a master's degree in English to help out.
Prose not being my strongest suit, I generally tend to stick to the project's categories and infoboxes; using AutoWikiBrowser to tidy and organise categories or improving the infoboxes and templates. That's one of the joys of the Wikipedia project: you don't have to have a master degree in English to help out. There are always things that need sorting or referencing, or whatever.
What features of the project do you participate in?
The project membership is small in number while the project has a large enough scope; it is all hands to the pumps, and I generally try to assist wherever I can. The other users in the project are very good editors, and every so often they or I will need minor help on a reference or will seek input to a stylistic change. As a whole I've found the project ticks over quite nicely without the need of article drives or a featured article of the week sort of thing.
