Surnames: StJohn, Sohn
Genealogist Henry Jones has at least 3 books on Palatine families. They mention the families in Ireland on these lists and they do include St John. He puts forward that Son and Sohn are likely pre names of St John. Elias for one, along with his brother arriving in the early 1700s in Ireland. Because of their livelihood (grapevine and wine making) they were likely Hugonauts who had left France for Germany before they became Palatine emmigrants.

Paltine families of Ireland were from the German Rhine region. Early in the 1700's they immigrated to Ireland and settled for a time. Many headed to America and Canada after that, probably other places as well.
Lord Southwell settled a bunch in Rathkeale in County Limerick, Ireland. Another estate was the Adare or Adair, though I am not sure which county this was.
Here's a list of the names that were included in the Irish Name Book and the County Limerick Name book for Palatines. I am sure these are not all there is.
