Enniskillen, Irland: Fixed Bing to bing [17.3.2-12.46]
Seriously? All OSM wiki pages say to use source=Bing ie http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:source and JOSM fills this in automatically when I have the bing layer added. Why do you feel the need to change this accepted standard?
Well, first of all this is a mechanical edit violating our policies, see https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Automated_Edits_code_of_conduct
Second, this change is pointless, as both versions, bing or Bing, correctly explain the source being used, thus you needlessly increase the version count of the objects.
Third, we now prefer to tag the used sources on the changesets, not on the object, unless the object has a very specific source. So we can better track multiple sources used over time.

(@KDDA - my JOSM does not add any source tags to objects automatically?)
@Polarbear - I don't know about your JOSM, but you will see that most of my edits have this tag, which was automatically added when I have the Bing layer active in JOSM
This user has done the same in a number of other edits in the local area, but has mixed them in with some useful edits, therefore I am reluctant to revert them.
@KDDA - ok, JOSM can add them to the changeset (not the object), in particular if you click "obtain from current layer" in the upload menu it adds all currently visible layers. Cool.)
Back to the topic, the user started some "area unglueing" in Germany some days ago, I am currently analysing and partially reverting those. Most likely those "Irish county border separations" need to be reverted as well. Achavi will help you: http://nrenner.github.io/achavi/?changeset=46520040
