Thank you very much for your message. I hope that someone with information on the Sharpes in Limerick makes a connection with you and helps you to further your research.
In the meantime, have you tried looking at church records in Nantinan to see if you can find any more information on these Sharpes? Most Catholic records are held locally so you may need to write to the local parish priest for possible assistance. One website that you may find useful is the Irish Times where they give an overview of what records are available in specific parishes. It also shows you where copies of the records are available. nantinan civil parish belongs to the RC parish of Kilcornan.To see what is available there, follow this link:
