Unfortunately, the map linked to [Griffiths Valuation] at does not match the plot numbers in the text.

Newross on 1829 to 1842 map.
Apparently the Ryan farm was a LHS turn off the road as you go from Ahane crossroads up to Kilnarath church.
Apparently it was the 1st left above, "Site of New Ross House", not the 2nd left.
This would make it the 2nd left turn today. See modern satellite view and street view.
