It's great to see the gap filled, but the one-way restriction is a
puzzle. Logically, you can't have a national road that can't be driven
in only one direction. It should be possible to get from the N67 to
the N68. The SI usually names a second path for the road where this
happens, but didn't in this instance. So we now have an N68 that's
spot on as per the SI, but where a route-planner couldn't navigate you
from Kilrush to Ennis without a large detour. For that reason, it's a
pity your coverage went haywire - some of your trails would probably
have helped here. FWIW, most of the GPS trails I've seen from Kilrush
have been a bit wonky, maybe it's a black spot.

Woohoo! Go me! It's less tracing and more using the force, I'm
surprised it was that accurate.

Kilrush looks like being one of those places that needs a mapping
party in order to get it properly mapped. Tralee is another one - a
lot of roads there are mapped, but hardly any are named, which makes
it hard to join up the classified roads based on the SIs. On that -
The SI for the N68 says that the stretch closest to the town is called
Vandeleur Street. Do you recall if that was the name of the one-way
