Multiple Fake Location POIs - Dundalk, Ireland

During reviews, I came across this faked location nomination and tagged it as abuse (it's true location is hundreds of meters away at 54.004419, -6.403632 - it clearly isn't in the park).

But I was reminded of another nomination I had previously reviewed in this park and also tagged as abuse, only to see it is live. There is 3D view of the park, and there is no way this playground is at this location unless dozens of trees were felled - https://intel.ingress.com/intel?pll=54.004736,-6.412378&z=16

Similarly, the nearby bandstand looks faked - https://intel.ingress.com/intel?pll=54.004934,-6.411777&z=16

Another plaque in the park claims to be on McEntee Avenue - https://intel.ingress.com/intel?pll=54.005977,-6.41028&z=16, which is again, hundreds of meters away, I believe the likely location to be https://goo.gl/maps/5JX9Vp7vY5k2h7x8A.

I recommend Niantic review all POIs made by the same submitters, particularly those with 3* (might be there) location ratings.
