Findmypast has some indexes to Irish births and marriages

It's good to see transcripts of these Irish civil birth and marriage records created independently by Findmypast from those at IrishGenealogy.ie, with links to the images of the original.
I cross-checked my Marmon interest. IrishGenealogy.ie found 16 births (excluding those that shouldn't have been delivered in an exact search) and 4 marriages. Findmypast delivered 7 births and 1 marriage. One of the FMP births included a stab at the mother's maiden name which IrishGenealogy.ie declined to guess at.
FMP's information is that further entries will be added, but fails to state what's already included. That's a point well made by Claire Santry in a comprehensive blog post who checks for her Santry interest.
