We provide new sufficient convergence conditions for the local and semilocal convergence of Stirling's method to a locally unique solution of a nonlinear operator equation in a Banach space setting. In contrast to earlier results we do not make use of the basic restrictive assumption in [8] that the norm of the Fréchet derivative of the operator involved is strictly bounded above by 1. The study concludes with a numerical example where our results compare favorably with earlier ones.
