The effectiveness of consular activity can only be measured by examining the consul's imprint on the district he attended to. Until the end of the nineteenth century, American political leaders were more concerned with state-building, the national project, and regional affairs than with global affairs. Nonetheless, the State Department was determined to secure representation wherever possible which contributed, along with patronage, to the development of a haphazard, amateur service in Ireland as elsewhere. Yet, at the most basic level of engagement, consuls in Ireland always saw themselves representing the new republic and upholding its core values.
