My traces from the last two days should help there.

Also uploaded on the API, but fetching the above might be less painful.

I should have tons of other logs of the Cork-Fermoy route as I've driven 
there a /lot/ - I just need to track all the files down.

Nice one.

Did you track down the list of POI type definitions for the file? I seem 
to recall that being tricky to find before.

I'm also wondering whether we can use any of the material from my final 
year project (parsing road acts orders and correlating them with the 
above mentioned NGS/NIMA data file to produce approximations to routes) 
in the absence of GPS logs. When I find some spare time I hope to 
produce similar maps for R roads as well as N roads.
