The Irish House of Commons

This 1780 painting by Francis Wheatley shows the Protestant dominated Irish House of Commons in Dublin in operation. Although theoretically in control of the levers of power, it often deferred to the priorities of its powerful neighbour, Britain. Additionally, its remit often failed to extend much beyond the Pale.
