Three reds in a connection block these are referred to as loop wires and do not connect to your light. The black with brown sleeve goes to brown on new lights and other two blacks go together and to blue on new lamp. All earths (Green/yellows) go together. Its all laid out in projects section with colour diagrams.
All best Eric
