Dear Rosemary, the book can be ordered from: Irish Palatine Association, Old Railway Buildings, Rathkeale, Co. Limerick, Ireland. You could check out the cost on their website, www.erin.ei/ipaEmail is: firstname.lastname@example.org. I have had no success finding my gt gt grandfather James Shire, in the same area, about the same age and cannot find his family. The Sheir/Shires from Limerick are all believed to come from Hans Adam Schyer who arrived in Ireland with the German Palatines in 1709. Best of luck, Kay Cox.
