History

Until the end of 2012, all that there was mapped in Ennis were the roads and some POIs in town. Some areas, like the Gort Road Industrial Estate, had been mapped also with some names tagged.

Since 2013, and with the availability of high-res satellite imagery, more details and in particular buildings were added, beginning with the area along the Tulla Road, between Clooney and Ennis. Then the estates along the Gort Road were added and also the estates Knockanean, Roslevan, Newpark etc. along the Tulla Road in Ennis as well as Corrovorrin appeared. Proper house numbers and even street names as address tags for buildings had always been a challenge even with local knowledge and on-site surveys, so this part is incomplete as of April 2013.

Areas in and around Ennis and their individual progress

In general, it could be said that most of the area east of the railway line is mapped. Remaining tasks are many house numbers or, when existing, house names instead. Newer estates all use house numbers, while the older ones, like Hillcrest, Four Seasons Drive, Ballymacahill and Newpark as well as all the (older) houses along the Tulla Road and Millbank only have (if at all) house names.
