Im Irish - so if you spot any Irish bias from me - get rid of it and complain!

I'm not too active here at the moment because i'm working on a number of things...

Hey! I'm from Mullingar, Ireland and have been an active member of Wikinews since 17th November 2004. I believe whole heartedly in Wikinews in the long term and think it really could become a top news source. I am particularly interested in the Economy, Business, Music, Sport, (particularly swimming and GAA) and in general current events.

I am a member of the Welcommittee, so if you need help settling in to life as a Wikinewsies just drop a note on my talk page. I am also an Administrator. Im also a regular on wikipedia.

To date, i've made in excess of 5,750 edits to Wikinews and written over 140 individual news articles. I have the 3rd highest number of edits overall on Wikinews. For a list of the articles i've written see My Article Contributions.

As a group, Wikinewsies have penned a total of 21,605 articles since the project began - that means i've written about 1 in 20 wikinews stories, or 5% of the total!

Wikinewsies worth knowing[edit]

I've got to say Wikinews is developing into a genuinely nice community, it is friendly, helpful, interesting and quite international. Some of the characters that make it so are listed below so that I can easily contact them.
