• Occupation: Solicitor-General for Ireland, 23 Dec 1830-21 Oct 1834, Dublin, Leinster, Ireland. 3 The Solicitor-General for Ireland was the holder of an Irish and then (from the Act of Union 1800 ) United Kingdom government office. The holder was a deputy to the Attorney-General for Ireland , and advised the Crown on Irish legal matters. At least one holder of the office, Patrick Barnewall (1534-1550 ) played a significant role in Government. The first record of a Solicitor General is in 1504; early Solicitors invariably had the rank of King's Serjeant. In the sixteenth century a Principal Solicitor for Ireland simultaneously performed the same function. With the establishment of the Irish Free State in 1922, the duties of the Attorney General and Solicitor General for Ireland were taken over by the Attorney General of Ireland.
