I read this great story earlier, a great use of google maps. Anyways what actually caught my eye was the link to Openeir. With a ‘loosely’ associated ‘ weblog here.

“OpenEir is a group for development of an open source map of Ireland using GPS receivers. Its also for the sharing of waypoints, trackpoints and routes.”

What an excellent idea, and I would encourage anyone who does a bit of travelling to contribute. Come to think of it, my dad puts up quite a bit of mileage around the South of Ireland. I must ask him if he would bring a GPS with him.
