How to contact my estranged father for documents required for Irish Citizenshp?

I recently learned I am eligible for Irish citizenship because my grandparents were born in Ireland. I need to obviously prove my relation to them, which is where things get sticky. I am related to them by way of my somewhat estranged father.

I need a long form birth certificate for him and other forms of ID (such as a drivers license).. I haven't seen him for almost 11 years or spoken to him for more than 7 years. He doesn't pay child support, so it is garnished from his wages. We know where he works and lives, though. I'm still trying to figure out what I should do. I'd really like to be an Irish citizen because of the benefits of being a EU citizen. I just don't even know how to contact him and ask for what I need. He made the divorce hell for my mom.
