The Earls of Dunraven.
Earl of Dunraven and Mount-Earl was a title in the Peerage of Ireland. It was created in 1822 for Valentine Quin, 1st Viscount Mount-Earl. Quin had already been created a Baronet of Adare in County Limerick. He was made Viscount Adare in 1822 at the same time as he was given the earldom.
His son, the second Earl, represented County Limerick in The House of Commons from 1806 to 1820 and also sat in the House of Lords as an Irish Representative Peer from 1839 until his death in 1850.
His eldest son, the third Earl, sat as a Conservative Member of Parliament from 1836 to 1850 and also served as Lord Lieutenant of County Limerick from 1864 to 1871.
The titles became extinct when the seventh Earl died on 25 March 2011 at his residence, Kilgobbin House, Adare.
Adare, a designated Heritage Town, is one of the prettiest and friendliest villages in Ireland. It was founded in the 13th Century on the river Maigue.
