Describes how the experience of Irish trials associated with the United Irishmen influenced the theory and practice of later English political trials. The author pays particular attention to the use of different categories of witnesses against the Irish revolutionaries, and how much the British state in general, and Lord Castleregh in particular, learned from these notorious show trials.

Keywords:   United Irishmen, Tone, Wolfe, Emmet, Robert, London Corresponding Society, spies, informers, Castlereagh, Lord
