Canadian BMDs in Irish civil registration

FamilySearch just added Ireland Civil Registration, 1845-1913 with 2,009,643 events. It has birth records for the period 1864-1913, marriages for 1845-1870, and deaths for 1864-1870. These are indexes, no images.
FmilySearch has had since June 2015 an Ireland Civil Registration Indexes, 1845-1958 collection which has 23,023,320 events.
I notice this new collection includes quite a few events in the US and Canada! If you're missing a BMD registration for an Irish person overseas the new collection may be somewhere you'd want to look.
Are these an Irish version of the consular records, RG 32 to 36 from the UK National Archives, found in Ancestry's UK, Foreign and Overseas Registers of British Subjects, 1628-1969?
