One route for Matchett from France to Ireland may be via Norfolk in England. By chance a lot of my research is in Norfolk but as I understand one of the earliest MATCHETT records in Ireland was in the 1630's and this was a vicar from Trimingham, Norfolk. Many Norfolk names are French or Flemish so this is a feasible route as Trimingham is also on the east coast of Norfolk where many of the French / Flemish names are found. It would be fitting if it was as my grandmother (an Irish MATCHETT) ended up living on the coast in Norfolk.
