Irish Lord Chancellor

The office of Lord High Chancellor of Ireland (commonly known as 'Lord Chancellor of Ireland') was the highest judicial office in Ireland until the establishment of the Irish Free State in 1922. From 1721 to 1801 it was also the highest political office of the Irish Parliament. In both respects the office mirrored the Lord High Chancellor of Great Britain.
