Notes:
La Grande Storia degli Scacchi and the Irish Chess Union website have 'Blake' at this event, where Gaige has 'Peake' and Di Felice has 'Peake, Alfred S.'. Forster suggests that 'Blake' was a pseudonym for Peake. Gaige, the Irish Chess Union website and La Grande Storia degli Scacchi have just 'White' at this event; Di Felice has 'White, A.P.'; Forster has 'White, J. (Dublin)'. Di Felice has 'Murphy, J.'; Gaige, Forster, La Grande Storia degli Scacchi and the Irish Chess Union website have 'Morphy, J.'. La Grande Storia degli Scacchi and the Irish Chess Union website show a win for White over Fitzpatrick; Gaige and Di Felice show it as a default win for Fitzpatrick over White; Forster shows it as a genuine win for Fitzpatrick over White. La Grande Storia degli Scacchi and the Irish Chess Union website show a win for Woollett over White; Gaige and Di Felice show it as a draw; Forster has it as a win for White over Woollett. La Grande Storia degli Scacchi and the Irish Chess Union website generally do not indicate defaulted games, but give official scores as if those games were played. Gaige and Di Felice show the game Peake-Woollett as a default win for Peake; Forster show it as a genuine win for Peake. Forster mentions an alternate version of the results from the British Chess Magazine, but uses reports from the Belfast News-Letter and the Warder and Dublin Evening Mail. I have adopted Forster's version of the crosstable.
