That's the boy.

Osmarender seems to have updated things in the last few hours, and I'm
fairly happy with the result. It'll take a long time to get the whole
coastline recalibrated, but baby steps, I think. The drumlins in Clew
Bay will be a bugger. It can only really be done in areas where you
can get some visible (on landsat) roads mapped nearby.

I would leave it as a bridge. Often a causeway has verges that might
be of interest, but will anyone ever really care what's under the
roadway in this case?

Wayhay! I've taken the liberty of retagging the N59 as primary (since
secondary != national secondary), but if I'm not wrong you've now
completed the national road network in Mayo. In fact, the only gap in
Connacht is now Portumna-Loughrea on the N65.

I've updated the table accordingly.
