Hi,

I'm not an editor, so I would be grateful if someone could make the following corrections.

The road marked Drummond Otra R135 here: http://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=16/53.9694/-6.7140 appears to actually be Oriel Road: https://maps.google.ie/maps?q=Carrickmacross&hl=en&ll=53.969883,-6.703822&spn=0.001309,0.003819&sll=53.992634,-6.727495&sspn=0.02094,0.061111&oq=Carrickmacross&dirflg=w&hnear=Carrickmacross,+County+Monaghan&t=m&z=18&layer=c&cbll=53.969824,-6.70399&panoid=Vs-QTpKrA2B--3p3M4_ogQ&cbp=12,224.73,,1,3.94
 
It seems likely that it is the R927, but the entry in the Roads Act 1993 (Classification of Regional Roads) Order 2012: http://www.irishstatutebook.ie/2012/en/si/0054.html appears confused. "Convent Lands Road" is, presumably, actually "Oriel Road". Google maps has "Convent Lands" at Bothar Eanna. "Moyheross" is spelled "Magheross" by the Ordnance Survey. This would appears to be the extent of the R927: https://maps.google.ie/maps?saddr=Unknown+road&daddr=53.9690969,-6.7110419+to:53.9675068,-6.7144707+to:Castleblaney+Road&hl=en&ll=53.974616,-6.710672&spn=0.027916,0.061111&sll=53.982743,-6.715114&sspn=0.005236,0.015278&geocode=FTaENwMdObaZ_w%3BFciANwMd_5iZ_ykr1H5IMbJgSDH9s5RNX7CjrQ%3BFZJ6NwMdmouZ_ylJmLJFN7JgSDEjnvznIaL-XQ%3BFUe2NwMdCoKZ_w&dirflg=w&mra=dme&mrsp=3&sz=16&via=1,2&t=m&z=14

The R135 is the former N3: http://www.irishstatutebook.ie/2012/en/si/0054.html

Drummond Otra is the townland name.

Thank you

Colm
