The Honourable, Sir Ignatius O'Brien, Lord Chancellor of Ireland by Mr. Poole. It looks, to me, like a reproduction from another shot by Mr. Poole unless of course he was captured emerging from a fog? Have you ever wondered about these grand titles? Were they real roles with powers and responsibilities or were they just jobs for the boys? And Ignatius himself, who was he and what can we find out about him?
