I Agree Carl, The !2 Bell O'Byrne Chime At S.T. Cathages Cathedral lismore 
(100  years old last month) were not deddicated till june 1911 but 9 were 
cast in 1908 and 3 in 1909 ...it will be an interesting choice as to when to 
celebrate the centenary of this chime ..1908..1909..or 1911 when they were 
dedicated and 1st rang out .
