Here is some background information on the Irish colonies in South Texas..

There are many books regarding the Irish settlement of Texas. Some of the more important ones are:

"The Texas Irish Empresarios and Their Colonies; Refugio and San Patricio"
By: Father William H. Oberste
(Probably the definitive history of early Irish settlement)

"The Forgotten Colony; San Patricio de Hibernia"
by Rachel Bluntzer Hebert

Shamrock and Cactus; The Story of the Catholic Heroes of Texas Independence"
By: W.M. Ryan
