Description: William Conyngham Plunket, 1st Baron Plunket(1764 – 1854) was an Irish politician and lawyer. In 1822 he was reappointed to the office of Attorney-General for Ireland because the previous holder was opposed to Catholic Emancipation, which the Crown by then accepted had become inevitable. Plunket, by contrast, supported Emancipation and was able to work in reasonable harmony with Daniel O’Connell to secure it.
