Thanks Richard.

I came across that website as well – very useful.

As you rightly pointed out, one of the main challenges is searching the citations.

For example, for my work researching ‘Irish’ asteroids, the definition is of course subject to various categories:

– Discovered by Irish people

– Discovered in Ireland

– Named after Irish people or places

– Named after people who are connected with Ireland

etc. the list goes on.

In this case, I am assuming the island of Ireland, which adds its own complexities wrt nationality, as I’m sure you can imagine.

Regards & Thanks,

Michael.
