Multiple logins to my MS account from an MS-owned IP address in Ireland?

Today I looked at the recent activity page on MS’s website and noticed that there were 6 or 7 successful logins to my MS account from an IP address in Ireland, spread out through December. I’m in England. An example: –

Any idea what’s going on here? I have 2 factor auth enabled on my account and have received no notifications asking me to authorise logins and nothing has been added to, nor changed on my account, so I’m wondering if the recent activity page is logging something it shouldn’t be logging. I’ve changed my password just in case.
