Redirected from Viscount Fitzalan

Edmund Bernard Fitzalan-Howard, Viscount Fitzalan of Derwent (June 1, 1855 - May 18, 1947) was the last Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, and the first Roman Catholic to hold the post. The post ceased to exist with the coming into existence of the Irish Free State and its 1922 Irish Constitution[?]. The office was replaced by the Governor-General of the Irish Free State.

He was born "Fitzalan-Howard". He assumed the surname "Talbot" by Royal licence in 1876 and returned to the use of his paternal name by Royal licence of 1921.
