Privy Council of Ireland
The Privy Council of Ireland was an institution of the Kingdom of Ireland until 31 December 1800 and of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland 1801-1922. It performed a similar role in the Dublin Castle administration in Ireland to that the Privy Council of the United Kingdom provided in the government of the United Kingdom.
A member of the Privy Council of Ireland who was a commoner was styled Right Honourable, just as the members of the British Privy Council were. A Lord of the Privy Council could append the initials PC after his title, as he would already have the title of Right Honourable (or a higher one like Most Honourable) as a peer.
The final appointments to the Privy Council were Charles Curtis Craig, William Henry Holmes Lyons and Henry Arthur Wynne on 28 November 1922. The Council effectively ceased to exist with the creation of the Irish Free State. Hugh O'Neill, 1st Baron Rathcavan was the last surviving member; appointed on 16 September 1921, he died on 28 November 1982.
