Clogher (Parliament of Ireland constituency)
for the Irish House of Commons
Clogher was a borough constituency in the Irish House of Commons until 1800. It represented the "city" of Clogher in County Tyrone. The city, actually no more than a village, gained its importance as the site of the cathedral of the Church of Ireland diocese of Clogher. The constituency was a rotten borough in the gift of the bishop. When the constituency was disestablished, bishop John Porter's claim for £15,000 compensation was disallowed.
