A possible new list.
Context of comment:David
Thanks for this suggestion. It would certainly be possible to add historical features like this. We could then have all of the facilities we offer for other places such as a page for each place, with commenting and photos and lists of what you have reached. For Ireland it would add to the local places that you might wish to reach which adds richness to the website and helps environmentally.

Some facts about this particular database. It is of hillforts and does not include megalithic tombs. So for example in Wicklow it doesn't show features like the passage tomb on Seefin. The actual data uses Irenet95 which we would have to convert to use with our mainly Irish grid based data. It is not clear if we could actually import the data the website runs on.

Of course there are practical issues also. Getting the data ready for a new feature would take a lot of time. It is taking quite some time to get the data together for the Coastal Hills for example. Members who are strong hillwalkers aren't necessarily skilled or interested in doing the detail work required.
