That's what I'm thinking, but I don't know much about this bank TBH so I couldn't tell you for sure ...

I'd vote 'Johnston' there. most likely a signature.

Yes, I think you are correct, it is Johnston & Co. They acted as agents in London for some of the Irish banks. It is interesting to see that the £5 and £10 notes were also payable in London at Jones, Loyd & Co. but not so for the lower denominations.

The appearance of Johnston & Co. in the signature area is difficult to explain. I wonder if they actually issued this note?

An interesting notion, and quite plausible considering that the notes were payable in London.

I guess there is a lot about the operations of the private banks that remains to be discovered.
