Can this Northern Ireland trig be added to database

Postby the kosciows » Sat Dec 12, 2015 4:32 pm

Travelling to NI end of April next year and wanted to visit Carnanmore TP. I notice other other NI trigs are on database but not this one. Please can it be added. Thanks and I awaited reply. Regards Simon.

It has indeed been done in the past but I don't know how. TPUK uses British national grid which of course doesn't cover Ireland, hence need a proxy grid ref. I've asked a couple of people who might know.

The Irish grid coordinates are for Carnanmore is D 2178 3877. I think Simon's interest was because Carnanmore is also a YOSM. The link provided makes the UK Grid NW 39773 95050.
