1828 By-Election Catholics were allowed to vote, but not allowed to sit in Parliament Voting was not in secret so tenants usually voted the way their landlord wanted them to In a By-Election in Clare in 1828, O’ Connell stood for election and managed to persuade tenants to vote for him The election went on for five days and O’ Connell easily won, becoming MP (Member of Parliament) for Co.
