None, really! Irish railways had much less need for shunters, and very often both in steam and diesel times, elderly main line or mixed traffic locos were assigned to shunting, or the train engine just did it. But the five members of CIE's "D" class were very close to a BR class 08. Just paint it black, and you're almost there. These things operated entirely in the Dublin area, mostly in Heuston goods yard and on North Wall goods transfers, from their construction as Ireland's first diesel shunters to their withdrawal in the 60s. So a layout with them would have to be set in the 50s or early 60s.
