i am hopefully going to be hunting for liberty caps in the autumn, but i was wondering are there any poisonous or non-active mushrooms that grow in Ireland that resemble the liberty cap, or are all those little shrooms that look like them lib caps?

Heheh, wish it was true Little brown mushrooms (LBMs) are notoriously difficult to identify, especially for a n00b. If you seriously intend to go hunting for liberty caps, please take the time to familiarise yourself with some basic mushroom identification skills. As Mitchnast pointed out, the Shroomery Faqs are a nice place to start. Don't forget to drop by Mushroom John's website; it features dozens of liberty cap pics.
Most important: don't eat ANYTHING you don't have a 100% certain ID on!
