Full Meetup Calendar

Everyone is cordially invited to attend an Editathon in Cork, Ireland in collaboration with Dublin2019.

Wikipedia is one of the leading resources of knowledge for anyone who has access to the internet. You can make an impact by helping contribute to the free encyclopedia which anyone can edit. Come join us as we assist members of the public potentially join our editing/contributing community.
