Accessing IRC

IRC provides a way of communicating in real time with people from all over the world. IRC is very similar to text messaging, but designed around communicating with large groups of users instead of one on one.

OSM Ireland have a dedicated channel ( #osm-ie ) on the OFTC IRC network. You can connect to this channel using an IRC client or by using the web chat below.

** NOTE ** Please use your OSM username in the chat, it helps other mappers get to know you.
