History

The town it represented was named after Charles II. It was enfranchised in 1673, a sovereign, 12 burgesses and freemen. It belonged to the Earl of Orrery, a branch of the Boyle family. In the Patriot Parliament of 1689 summoned by King James II, Charleville was represented with two members.[1] At the end of the 18th Century the constituency was controlled by Lord Shannon and Lord Cork who each nominated one member. The compensation of £15,000 for the loss of the seats in the Act of Union 1800 was divided equally between them.
