Developer bought a house in Cherrygarth (which is in Mount Merrion) to provide development access, so that's how it's being pitched as a Mount Merrion site.

In fairness it's the far side of Oatlands - not along the N11 so it is just off Tress Road etc. which is Mount Merrion for sure.

The access to the houses is from Mount Merrion, therefore it’s Mount Merrion.
That’s the rule.

I also checked other areas in the map you linked to and found it to be wrong

But Cherrygarth is in the Stillorgan North townland?

Are you saying that border is wrong then? How about this map then? http://maps.osi.ie/publicviewer/#V2,719653,728304,10,7


Developers and estate agents will always be loose with location naming when it suits them.

But nobody relies on the old townland boundaries from 100 years ago; the modern postal address system is what is relied on now to identify locales. Fine, Cherrygarth was developed on what was the Stillorgan North townland from way back when - but now it's accepted that it's part of Mount Merrion, and consequently any development accessed solely from Cherrygarth will also be considered to be a Mount Merrion development.

As above, the townland map you're relying on isn't wrong per se, it's just outdated and no longer relevant to the current accepted development/postal/address system.

The only way to access Cherrygarth is from Mount Merrion therefore it’s Mount Merrion

The modern postal address system is based on the Post Town which is simply for sorting post.
