Robert Shier m Arabella Switzer?

I am trying to find out about my Shire ancestors in Ireland. Yesterday I was looking at the LDS site and discovered a Robert Shier married to an Arabella Switzer who had a child, Henry John b 4.6.1864 in Ireland. As my ggf Robert Shire was born around 1857 in Ireland and his father was also called Robert this aroused my interest. I was further curious if there might be a connection with my family as my ggf Robert had a daughter who they named Arabella. This is not a particularly common name so I was wondering if there was a family link. Can anyone shed any light on any further children of Robert and Arabella? Did Henry John have any siblings? What happened to them? When did Robert Shier and Arabella get married? etc. This is the first possbility I have come across for my potential GGGF as the Census returns have drawn a blank.

i would be grateful for any help.
