The history of the road in OSM shows that, up to a year ago, it was
called Oriel Road and was renamed. The townland name "Drummond Otra" is
used in various places (including the Regional Routes SI) which may be
the source of the confusion.

I've changed the name back.

That looks like the only possibility. I've updated the ref on Oriel

Yes, that shouldn't be anywhere near here.

Take a look at the map (you may need to force a reload to update the map
tiles) and let me know.
