The Irish Lord Lieutenancy, c.1541-1922
Talks at this conferenceAdd a talk
For more than three hundred years the government of Ireland was headed by the Irish Lord Lieutenant, a peer who combined the ‘efficient’ direction of the Irish executive on behalf of the British crown with the ‘decorative’ role of viceroy or surrogate of the crown at the Irish court. The conference is intended to explore, through a series of invited papers, the multiple dimensions of the Lord Lieutenancy as an institution – political, social and cultural – between its emergence and abolition. Speakers include: Miles Taylor, Toby Barnard, James Kelly, Theo Hoppen.
