Here's an article from the Clogher Record on assisted emigration from the Shirley Estate:
'Assisted Emigration from the Shirley Estate, 1843-54: by Patrick J. Duffy,
published in 'The Clogher Record', Vol. XIV, No. 2. p. 7-63

Some info on the estate, which should be of interest to many of us because of its size:
"The Shirley estate just outside Carrickmacross was the largest estate in the county covering some 26,386 acres."

This page from Fianna has a list of LDS holdings on Monaghan but doesn't include the Shirley Papers
