Merge[edit]

Lists Overlapping!!!! There are numerous lists which overlap but which do necessarily contain relevant data from each other

E.g.

Lists of Castles in the ROI, Lists of Castles in Ireland, List of historic abbeys, monuments & castles in Ireland, List of Historic Houses in Ireland, Category: Castles in Kerry,... X 32

The historic abbeys, monuments & castles list had Bunratty filed as a monument & only contained three castles for the whole of Ireland!

Too many cooks??

Vote FOR merge. Rationale: better more accurate maintenance of information on a single list WP article rather than two; these lists aren't getting much editor attention. Also, any distinction between the two lists could be made within a single reorganized list article. N2e 16:08, 15 November 2007 (UTC)
I suggest we refer this to User:BrownHairedGirl who is pretty expert in the area of categorisation. (Sarah777 00:41, 16 November 2007 (UTC))
Thanks for the note on my talk, Sarah. You flatter me: I think I'm more of an obsessive than an expert, but since an "ex" is a has-been and a "spurt" is a drip under pressure, maybe that's me after all ... :)
As to categorisation, it looked pretty good, but I have added Category:Ireland-related lists.
On merger, I think I'd suggest a third option: transclusion: make this article a shell which transcludes the Republic list and the NI list. Hey presto, we have an all-Ireland article for those who want that, and separate lists for both sides of the border for those who want them ... but no duplicate documents to maintain. If none of you have done this before, drop me a note and I can show how it's done. --BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 00:57, 16 November 2007 (UTC)
Without fear of contradiction I can say I have never knowingly transcluded! (Sarah777 01:35, 16 November 2007 (UTC))
OK, it's now done. For help on this sort of thing, see Wikipedia:Transclusion. --BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 15:54, 16 November 2007 (UTC)

Photos of Castle Kirk[edit]

I have a batch of pretty decent photos taken in 2003 of Castlekirke, a small island castle in upper Lough Corrib. Castle Kirk is on the List of castles in Ireland list, but has no article. I don't know the first thing about writing a castle article in the correct format, nor uploading photos with the correct naming conventions, license, etc., but would be glad to provide photos to others. I also have photos of two pages of text describing the description and history of Caislean Kirk, very readable, that would provide a good basis for a stub on the castle. If anyone is interested, write me on my Talk page. N2e 03:31, 16 November 2007 (UTC)

For increase the interests of this page[edit]

Hello, I just inform you that I could translate the map on fr wikipedia fr:Liste des châteaux irlandais par région, If you want of course. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Otourly (talkcontribs) 16:11, 25 April 2008 (UTC)

The Great Merge of 9/5/2016[edit]

So I perhaps went a little overboard and spent about an hour merging the two list pages for Ireland at last. While transclusion of the two is an interesting idea, I believe it is much simpler now just to use the Table of Contents box to travel over borders.

Feel free to have a discussion with me here or on my User talk:Vami_IV. Vami IV (talk) 06:55, 8 September 2016 (UTC)Deus Vult!
