Errors

Many people go on about the errors in Wikipedia. But errors occur in all publications take this line from National Geographic
In 1884, with Ireland under the rule of the British Crown, a group of Irish nationalists met in County Galway to establish an organization for Irish athletes, the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA). It is still the governing body of hurling and Gaelic football (as well as of ladies football and carmogie, a hurling-like sport for women).
Can some one please tell me when Thurles Co Tipperary was considered part of Galway. Did they even look this up

I hate to ask, but is "carmogie" your mistake or National Geographic's?

In general Wikipedia is fine. But there are some appalling articles there where the mistakes are more than just minor. A particular one I have seen is the article on the potential German invasion of Ireland in WWII:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Gr%C3%BCn_%28Ireland%29

It takes 3 or 4 true historical items and then links the lot together as if they were all interconnected. The result is an article that is rubbish and a false picture of what happened at the time. At least Wikipedia have recently identified this and have flagged the article as suspect.

With all things Wikipedia needs to be approached with a large degree of caution.
