Turns out that the petition I am interested in is reprinted in full in Hore's History of the Town of Wexford.

Did you happen to get your hands on a copy of that petition? I would be interested to know what names were on it.

The book containing it is available free online, as copyright expired a long while ago. Google Hore, History of Wexford. Their history is a 6 volume set, covering the entire county, by area. The 1660 petition is in the volume covering the town of Wexford - volume 5, I think. I am travelling, so providing the exact link is beyond me right now - perhaps someone else can supply? Volume 5 contains a lot of interest besides, e.g. 1662 valuation of Wexford, listing tenants,  etc.
