Batch merge multiple shapefiles - with confusing file structure

I have a series of folders that have different shapefiles in each one. The naming convention is odd. All I need to do is search through each subfolder and get the shapefiles ending with *_CadastralPolygons.shp. I figured I could output it to a holding folder for now (called "hold"). The naming convention doesnt matter either, I just need to get this working in my "testing" folder then I can apply it to my larger dataset.  Thanks
