St. Finbarr's Cemetery[edit]

Good start on St. Finbarr's Cemetery but what about a photo? Cheers ww2censor 18:12, 27 July 2006 (UTC)

WP TDs[edit]

In relation to your recent edits to a number of pages of people who were once members of the WP. While I can understand why you removed these people from the category, the policy on Wikipedia is to give all the party affiliations of people. If we were just to list people according to the parties they are currently in or ended up in, we'd have to depopulate the category for Democratic Left for example. Might I suggest that a category be made for Former WP politicians?--Damac 13:35, 18 December 2006 (UTC)

Cathal Goulding[edit]

Please stop changing the date of birth. After it being unsourced for basically forever, I've finally sourced it from here as 30 December 1922. Thanks. One Night In Hackney303 06:59, 20 April 2007 (UTC)

Mother Jones[edit]

Hi Coolavokig, do you have a source for her being born in Blarney Street? [1] Cheers, --Bookandcoffee 19:42, 19 July 2007 (UTC)

Hi there, I know it was published in a book called, I think "Day by Day in Cork" by the late Seán Beecher, which I have somewhere but am trying to locate. I wrote an article about her for a small local newsletter a few years ago and used Beecher as the source, I think I also referenced it to a Cork based annual publication called "The Holly Bough" which comes out every year before Christmas. I know it is a fact that she was born in Blarney Street, but I suppose I should have researched and provided the reference from the beginning. Thanks. Coolavokig 16:11, 22 July 2007 (UTC)


Hi, your recent edit [2] quoted "established convention", do you have a reference for this, it looks like I need to brush up on my wikiquette, Thanks Fasach Nua 14:53, 26 October 2007 (UTC)

The convention I speak of refers to the fact that other prominent Irish people born before the 1922 Anglo-Irish Treaty are listed as having being born in "Ireland" not the United Kingdom or the United Kingdom of Great Britain of Ireland. I would cite the entries concerning just a few such people for example Michael Collins, George Bernard Shaw, Seán Lemass, Theobald Wolfe Tone or even Lord Kitchener. All were born before the establishment of the Irish Free State and its successor state. Each and everyone has "Ireland" simply as their birthplace. This amounts to convention. Now please stop changing the birthplace for Mary Harris to Cork, UK as this is the incorrect form. Coolavokig 16:19, 26 October 2007 (UTC)
I think having a different rule for Irish born people, than for the rest of planet is a tad inconsistant, if you look at other biographic entries, they list countries as they were at the time of birth, not as they are now.
I have reverted your edit, and suggest if you feel strongly about the matter to take it up with WP:IMOS or WP:MOSBIOFasach Nua 09:06, 27 October 2007 (UTC)
If you think that then surely in the name of consistency you should also change the entry style for Kitchener, Michael Collins, GB Shaw, etc, etc. Since you are the person who made the original change to Mother Jones you and not I are the person who should take it up with WP:IMOS if you feel so strongly about it. In the meantime I am reverting it back to what it was before your first edit thus reverting to the situation that existed before this dispute began. Coolavokig 09:22, 27 October 2007 (UTC)

Talk:Northern Ireland[edit]

I dont really know what you are getting at, so I could be wrong, but I altered your comment [3]. I never changed the meaning of someones comments on a talk page as dramatically as this, but it does look like a typo Fasach Nua 11:53, 29 October 2007 (UTC) Obviously it is a typo.

Cathal Goulding's date of birth (again)[edit]

I have once again reverted changes to the birth date of Cathal Goulding (1923-1998). The obituaries of early 1999 were wrong. The correct date is as stated in 1923. This has been confirmed by members of Cathal's family and sourced in a Workers' Party publication of 1999. Coolavokig (talk) 09:25, 5 January 2008 (UTC)

I'm afraid I don't see the parallel. Cathal Goulding's date of birth isn't like a religion or ethnicity - it is a matter of fact, not conjecture. Coolavokig (talk) 16:23, 11 January 2008 (UTC)

Heinrich Hertz[edit]

John Halligan (Irish socialist politician)[edit]

Nuvola apps important yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article John Halligan (Irish socialist politician), suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page. Also, please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached. If you agree with the deletion of the article, and you are the only person who has made substantial edits to the page, please add {{db-author}} to the top of John Halligan (Irish socialist politician).

Re: Ballinacurra[edit]

You're right. My bad :-) I didn't think about other Ballinacurras when I moved the article. I've moved it again to Ballinacurra, County Cork, since the naming convention appears to be "County" rather than "Co." All the best, Bláthnaid 15:27, 2 July 2008 (UTC)

Tom French[edit]

Hi - I'm intending to create an article on Tom French fairly soon, provided I can find sufficient reliable sources; I'd also be quite happy to see anyone else create an article. I considered that as the former leader of a significant party in Ireland, there should be no question over his notability. Do you have any useful sources? I created an article on John Lowry a while ago and struggled to find sources beyond his election results. Warofdreams talk 13:45, 8 August 2008 (UTC)

RE: Ballyporeen[edit]

Good that you have corrected it, but my main point remains - you should have tagged the sentence with the [citation needed] tag and not have made your point with bold text. Syferus (talk) 12:30, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

Unreferenced BLPs[edit]

Information.svg Hello Coolavokig! Thank you for your contributions. I am a bot alerting you that 2 of the articles that you created are tagged as Unreferenced Biographies of Living Persons.

In addition, to ensure verifiability, all biographies should be based on reliable sources. If you were to bring these articles up to standards, it would greatly help us with the current 2,891 article backlog. Once the articles are adequately referenced, please remove the {{unreferencedBLP}} tag. Here is the list:

Hi, would you be so kind as to give us support![edit]

Hello, I hope you're doing fine and I sincerely apologize for this intrusion. I've just read your profile and I understood that you're an Irishman (I wish I can visit your wonderful country some time soon!), so can you understand what are a minorized language and culture and maybe I am not bothering you and you will help us... I'm a member of a Catalan association "Amical de la Viquipèdia" which is trying to get some recognition as a Catalan Chapter but this hasn't been approved up to that moment. We would appreciate your support, visible if you stick this on your first page: Wikimedia CAT. Supporting us will be like giving equal opportunity to minorized languages and cultures in the future! Thanks again, wishing you a great summer, take care! Keep on preserving your great culture, country, music and language! Slán agat! Capsot (talk) 17:14, 12 June 2010 (UTC)

Clonmult Ambush & WP:ARBCOM/TROUBLES[edit]

Hi Coolavoki. I've removed the list of names you added to the above article for two reasons. First, per WP:NOTMEMORIAL we don't generally include casualty rolls; an exception is often made for notable individuals, but not for entire casualty lists. Secondly the tone of the edit was not neutral. The title "Roll of honour", the listing of only IRA dead and the assumption that the execution allegations are true all added up give the impression that the article is sympathetic to the IRA position. The point of our core neutrality policy is that Wikipedia has no opinion, either for or against. Just so you're aware, if you intend to work in this area in future you need to be more careful; all articles related to "The Troubles" fall under a 2007 Arbitration Committee restriction (set out at WP:ARBCOM/TROUBLES). All the best and thank you for your other work, EyeSerenetalk 18:39, 5 January 2011 (UTC)

Mary Harris Jones[edit]

Hi. Those three sentences at Mary Harris Jones are very confusing - at least they confused me! They seem to say she lost "her entire family" - which I had assumed included her husband - to yellow fever in 1867. It then says she lost her home, shop and possessions in the fire without mentioning her husband. I don't doubt you're correct about what happened but those sentences should be rewritten somehow. Station1 (talk) 21:29, 23 March 2011 (UTC)

You are probably right. After checking a number of other sources it is now clear that the first, and major turning point for Mary Harris Jones was the deaths of her husband and their four children in the yellow fever epidemic of 1867. The second event, the Great Fire of Chicago, was four years later in 1871. Thanks for drawing to my attention. 06:46, 24 March 2011 (UTC)Coolavokig (talk) 06:47, 24 March 2011 (UTC)
