A history of the early Irish parliament from the era underJames 1 to the founding of Grattan’s parliament. Over the years, the Irish Parliament met in many different locations, including Dublin Castle. In 1729, construction began on what was to become the first purpose-built two-chamber parliament house in the world. It mirrored the British Parliament, with a House of Commons, presided over by a speaker, and a House of Lords consisting of Irish peers and Church of Ireland Bishops.
