The following events are organized first by county and then by parish in the most general fashion. I have placed some datapoints closer together where I know from other data sources that there is overlap. Please be aware that the fact the Birneys live next door to one another does not prove they are related, but it certainly calls for a closer look. Please feel free to contact me with corrections or additions.
