Here's a cool link - in the baptismal 1846 record for Arthur Byrne son of Hugh and Margaret Byrne (my candidate great great grandparents) one of the witness's is a Pat Lambert.   I tracked down what appears to be Hugh Byrne's home/farm lease in Ballymanus in the National Archives and lo and behold his next door neighbor is listed right there as a Pat Lambert.  Nice when this stuff works :)!

LINK to land records (need to get a map of the actual properties - next task! - thx for the pointer from MyLuck!):
