There's nothing wrong with the list as far as I can tell, except for a
lack of interest. It used to be much more active, and the
soc.genealogy.britain newsgroup, from which this group was split off when
it was has continued to be very active with many
new topics added each day.

I think part of the problem is that, unlike the British genealogists, the
Irish group has divided up into a variety of mailing lists devoted to a
particular county, or other group. Cork, the largest county, has not one,
but two mailing lists, plus at least one other dedicated to a single town,
that of Mallow, although the Mallow group discusses pretty much anything
that went on in the Poor Law Union of Mallow, which includes quite a few
parishes in North Cork.
