[4qd-bannvalley] "The Scots Kirk", by James McIlfatrick (1990)

Hello to all -

I would be most interested in reading this book, "The Scots Kirk", a
history of First Presbyterian church at Kilrea, by James McIlfatrick
(1990).  However, I've never seen a copy of it pop up on the used
books web sites.

Has anyone read it? and can recommend it?  If yes, where might a copy
be held?

It WAS the Mercers at Kilrea.  I never replid last time because I thought it
was Rasharkin you were asking about and I am not sure about Rasharkin.
