Whilst not the most public area of history/heritage, there is nonetheless a significant amount of information relating to the industrial heritage of the island of Ireland available.
Notwithstanding the reputation that is attached to Wikipedia, as a method of online publishing a range of information in a relatively flexible format with an ability to link profusely, both within the Wiki and externally, Wikis appear to have a lot going for them. To this end, I have started the process of building an Irish Industrial Heritage Wiki here on industrialheritageireland.info.
The Wiki is in the early days of creation and population and therefore the priority for my information adding is:
1. Relevant Google Alert information/Iris Oifiguil/newspaper reports
2. Information provided to me by third parties
3. Railways - Open
4. Railways - Closed
6. Other areas of industrial heritage
Currently the site is setup with only one user (me) and therefore any information can be emailed to me. It is my intention to allow users to register and add/amend over time.
The new section of the site can be accessed at http://www.industrialheritageireland.info/TikiWiki/
Days Hotel Belfast - located in a lovely area of Belfast where the Union Jack flies from every lamppost and the kerbstones are painted blue white and red.
