I've concentrated more on the rural bits, as I'm just south of Roscommon 
and only drive around rural Galway mostly. I've been around Shrule, 
Glenncorrib and Headford today, so I'm going to make a few adjustments. 
I saw a few stretches, that weren't mapped (Mom is great for that craig 
on the cellphone) and a few others were off, or a bit too rough.

I found, that it really helps having a bit better quality GPS receiver. 
The internal ones in the Nokia's definatly don't hack it for OSM mapping.

I will also get a good bit in Connemara done end of this week, hopefully.

As for Galway city, it definatly starts to look good, there's very few 
places I've found missing bits.

I've so far only kept myself to roads and services, so I wouldn't 
comment on that :)
