On the basis of the chief secretary’s advice, the regulations enacting DORA were amended on 20 April to allow interment if individuals acted ‘in a manner prejudicial to the public safety of the realm’.22 On 5 May 1918, the government replaced Chief Secretary Duke and Lord Lieutenant Lord Wimborne with an Irish executive who more fully supported their intent to enforce conscription. They wanted a team who would play hard ball with the anti

Castle. In Ireland the representative of the Crown lived in a lodge, bishops lived in a palace, and the State resided in a Castle. At the head of the Irish administration was the Lord Lieutenant, representing the Crown.

Unlike the Crown the Lord Lieutenant was a political appointment, taken up and vacated with the ruling political party at Westminster. Again

an institution, even as its symbolic power as guarantor of any peace treaty increased. Other chapters approach familiar subjects from unfamiliar angles: Ormond is the focus of two chapters looking at very different aspects of his role as lord lieutenant. My own eschews the normal political route to focus on Ormond’s involvement with Archbishop Ussher and the running of the Church of Ireland, specifically the appointment of bishops. This shows not only Ormond’s determination to keep the church hierarchy filled with suitably able ­men – ­which was especially

, than with the limited nature of provision per se. The events at the Dublin house of industry during the first decades of the nineteenth century served to reinforce the perception that there was an urgent need for lunatic asylums in Ireland. As in other houses of industry, several lunatic wards had been attached to the original institution. In 1810, the governors were provided with a grant to establish a separate hospital for lunatics, subsequently named the Richmond Lunatic Asylum after Charles Gordon Lennox, the Duke of Richmond, Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, who had

Such appointments would suffice in the immediate term, and would not obstruct his future advancement. While Donnellan favoured seeking a marquessate for Clanricarde, the earl perceived a number of impediments. He felt that Ormond might not be supportive, as he might expect that only he should hold this title as he was the king’s lord lieutenant. Clanricarde feared such

Cheshire on the eve of civil war
Authors: Richard Cust and Peter Lake

This book aims to revisit the county study as a way into understanding the dynamics of the English civil war during the 1640s. It explores gentry culture and the extent to which early Stuart Cheshire could be said to be a ‘county community’. It investigates the responses of the county’s governing elite and puritan religious establishment to highly polarising interventions by the central government and Laudian ecclesiastical authorities during Charles I’s Personal Rule. The second half of the book provides a rich and detailed analysis of the petitioning movements and side-taking in Cheshire during 1641-42. This important contribution to understanding the local origins and outbreak of civil war in England will be of interest to all students and scholars studying the English Revolution.

On 5 November 1711, the Chancellor of Christ Church Cathedral in Dublin, John Travers, preached a sermon in the cathedral before the Irish Lord Lieutenant, James Butler, second duke of Ormond. It being the anniversary of the Gunpowder Plot, Travers reminded his congregation that, just over a century ago, the ‘Powder was actually plac’d in a Cellar under the Parliament House … and the Train was laid for setting
