Family Search is very much like Ancestry,it's very American centric,so all names/places will revert to the American version of it.

Sometimes they just move from one part of Ireland to another  ::)
A whole chunk of records from Ballymoney, County Antrim for years have shown up as Ballymoney, Cork but it has gotten worse more recently.
Away sorting out DNA matches... I may be gone for some time many years!

As others have said ancestry/FS are American and attach American logic and that is often  town/county named the same  in North America.... that should give you a clue about lack of verifcation of data they advertise
ANY information online is ONLY ever a clue, UNLESS you can see a scan of the real record, so ANY information use as a clue and search for the real record before you trust it.in so far as 1901/1911 Irish census it is free online and all scanned real records...
FS particularly collects 'data' at one time it was called IGI and everyone knew it was full of errors, unchecked and not verified and LDS don't beleive people died so there used to be no burial informtion either, instead the LDS baptised them on death into the LDS.... they now realise to make more money people want burial information and FS have taken their IGI and renamed it as 'collections', same information, same collected, unverified data, same errors...and all now sold to ancestry and the other commercial genealogy companies
