On Wiki!

Since joining Wiki in November 2002, I have written primarily though not exclusively on Irish affairs, both political and historical. I have however broadened to cover a wide range of areas, from Papal Tiaras to Communist state, Blessed Virgin Mary to Oral sex!!! Since buying a digital camera in May 2003 I have devoted time (far too much time!!!) to taking photographs around Dublin for use on wiki. The lists below don't include all the images added.
