The Geograph Project aims to collect geographically representative photographs and information for every square kilometer of Ireland
The project divides the country into a grid. Contributors register for free, then use a map or enter a place name to identify the square of the grid associated with their photo, and finally, upload the photo with a description and other information. (More on submissions here.)
You also can browse images from the sites map. I was surprised to see someone had uploaded a photo of the National School in the small townland of Ardvarney, where my ancestors lived, Carmack said.
