These individuals are matching at a level consistent with having a near common ancestor though the genetic distances suggest their common ancestor is rather distant.  That is, that they descend from a common ancestor in Europe, but definitely not from a single immigrant to the United States.  I would urge all of those who haven't done so to upgrade to 111 markers to hopefully clarify the relationships here.
Combined SNP test results:
M269+ L150+ L23+ L49+ L51+ CTS6889+ P310- P311- L11- U106- P312-
          Counties of Northern Ireland:  Antrim, Armagh, Fermanagh, Derry/Londonderry, Tyrone.

What constitutes a match?
Matches in other surnames are usually mere coincidence, so please ignore them — I'll let you know when you shouldn't!
For 12 markers: 9 or less is a non-relative; for 10-12 markers, please see this table compiled by FTDNA.
For 25 markers: 21 or less is a non-relative; for 22-25 markers,
For 37 markers: 31 or less is a non-relative; for 32-37 markers,
For 67 markers: 59 or less is a non-relative; for 60-67 markers,
For 111 markers: 100 or less is a non-relative; for 101-111 markers,
For any test:  0 matching markers, please contact NASA.
