I've been adding a number of populated places in on Ireland today and have noticed a problem. A number of the larger towns have the original Irish name and the name that everyone uses and is on the map is listed as an alternative name. Would it be possible to change those towns to the common name please? Basically I have a customer database that isn't matching and towns that cant be searched from. The problem towns that I have identified so far are below (hopefully it'll stay tab delimited in the post):

The format is: current name followed by common name follow by county.

If you are happy for the change then I will do it manually if needed but I wanted to run it by you first.
