I am not aware of any irish loco which looked particularly close to this, though some companies (GNR/BCDR/DSER) did use 4-4-2 tanks they were mostly of Beyer Peacock or Sharp Stewart manufacture, and looked quite different.

 

However, I once used an old whitemetal "Ks" kit for this loco as the basis for a BCDR 4-4-2 tank, No 30 (the one in Culttra); It wasn't 100% accurate (naturally) but it's still running and no-one has ever mistaken it for anything else.

The drivers are too small, you need to alter the rear pony truck wheel, remove outside cylinders...I don't think it would be generally practical to starting carving up an expensive Hornby or Oxford model, though. However, someone may want to do it. And you never know, I might just have another bash myself someday...
