This chapter examines the rationale behind the decision to appoint a representative in Ireland, to document the men who were selected for the posts, their reasons for applying and ultimately leaving, to identify whether the pattern of appointments to Ireland betrayed the main weakness of the nineteenth-century consular system, namely that it was flawed by being non-professional and exposed to patronage and corruption. Finally, it examines how reforms after 1856 affected the consular service in Ireland.
