Default South African Irish badge?

All, hoping someone can shed light on the following badge that I acquired in a collection of South African badges, which include South African Irish. Any ideas?

This badge turns up from time to time, no one seems to have a positive ID.

FWIW, the Cape Town Irish Volunteer Rifles (1885-91) wore a badge like this on their pillbox forage caps.
