I stumbled across Herbert Zachariah Deane, Solicitor 1889 Clonakilty, 1900 Parliamentary Agent for House of Lords. He seems unknown which is surprising.
He is the Son of Barnabas Deane, Gentleman Dunmanway. The Barnabas Christian name runs in the Dunmanway Dense and Deane families as in Durrus whose roots are in Dunmanway. In 1901 his parents are Methodist speak Irish.
It is unclear how he transgressed as a young solicitor? in Clonakilty in 1897 to within 5 years being the leading Parliament Agent and Solicitor in London navigating important Irish cases through the House of Lords in its Judicial Functions
From 1917 he is representing Irish Political Prisoners in London and granted access to Maud Gonne McBride in Pentonville Gaol. It is possible tht he knew Sam Maguire who would have been in London around this time.
IN the 1920s and 1930s he represents the Irish Government in the London Superior Courts adn the Privy Council. The Irish Government managed by the mid 1930 to eliminate any recourse to the Privy Council and Bunreacht na hEireann in 1937 established the Supreme Court as the final count in Irish Legal Affairs until we joined the tem EEC in 1972. The Irish Constitution (or Bunreacht na hÉireann) was ratified by the Irish people in 1937. It is the fundamental law of the State. … It also describes the fundamental rights of every Irish citizen. The Constitution is also part of a wider human rights framework in Ireland.

This is a snapshot including a number of newspaper reports on the lead up and aftermath of the 1914 election for parts of West Cork. it is not exhaustive nor does it deal with the tensions and splits within the Irish Parliamentary Party.
Women are making an appearance. It looks like they are acting within lage family networks some of which probably stretch back to the 18th century and earlier rather than as individuals as would now be the case.
The networks consist of closely linked family groups by marriage. They are largely hidden from view, prosperous dn from early Grand Jury records appear aaas contractors. Despite political and religious differences with the local landowning families and Magistrates they seem from the records to be a good relationship with for example some of the contracting families acting as sureties for Baronial Constables (cess tax collectors) and acting as cess payer representatives.
Within a few short years the country would be transformed by World War 1, the conscription crisis of 1917, the Irish Parliamentary Party supported enlistment. Many of those elected were on recruiting platforms..
Re World War 1 somewhere between 35,000 and 50,000 Irish born men died. Denmark, smaller than Ireland, was independent and neutral. The estimate for Danes lost is 700. Res Ipsa Loquitur.
By 1922, the Anglo Irish War had ended with the Treaty between Ireland and the United KIngdom, The Irish Parliament Party was wiped out in the 1917 elections by Sinn Féin. Ireland was partitioned and the Irish Civil War commenced.
Although the Irish Parliamentary Party disappeared, the very detailed information of those named in the newspaper showed that many of their descendants are still active politically in various political parties. Truly politics is in the blood
The first County Councils were formed in 1899 following the passing of the previous year of the Local Government (Ireland) Act 1898. The Act achieved breakthroughs on many fronts. The right to vote for local elections was extended to all householders including, for the first time at any level of democracy, women.
For the 1899 elections women were able to stand for election to the Rural District Councils which were a sub-division of the Councils proper and a number of women were elected to such positions. Irish women were given the right to vote. But not every woman – just women over 30, who had property rights or a university education.The law that changed things was called the Representation of the People Act, 1918. The act also gave the vote to all men over the age of 21. When it was passed, because of the criteria around a ‘property qualification’, this meant that just 40% of all the women in the UK could vote.

In the Chief Secretary papers there are frequent references to the 1821 census and the poor pay of the enumerators and the supervising role of the Magistrates. In 1821 the procedure required by new legislation was for the Magistrates at Quarter Session, advised by the Co. Law Officer to arrange for the taking of the census. There are also a number of references to the Magistrates making statistical returns but it is not clear what these are.
For the period 1818-1823 there were in excess of 1,700 references to the Magistrates. Many are supporting petitioners for public employment.

Genealogy of Bernard family courtesy Catherine Fitzmaurie:
John Nash, Esq., Brinny, 1829 member Bandon Brunswick Club. Brinny House was being leased by J.H. Wheatley to Rev. George Nash at the time of Griffith’s Valuation, when it was valued at £30. In October 1854, it, together with the rest of Nash’s property at Brinny, was offered for sale in the Encumbered Estates Court. The house is described in the sale notice as “in good repair”. Lewis refers to it as the seat of J. Nash in 1837. In the late 1770s and 1780s it was the residence of Nash esq. In 1942 the Irish Tourist Association Survey referred to “a semi-derelict old mansion near Brinny Bridge, the reputed residence of Seán Dearg Nash, tyrannical provost of Bandon, 1690-1724″The Nash family seem to have become established in the Bandon area in the seventeenth century. Local sources suggest they may have been from Somerset. His eldest son John married 1844 Mary, daughter of Rev. Somes Payne.
