‘Discount’ Latouche, a partner in the family bank, was returned for Harristown by his father during the last Irish parliament and like him opposed the Union.1 As his seat was disfranchised, he transferred to the city of Dublin in December 1801, reminding the citizens in his address of their partiality to his father in 1767 1767 and requesting government to be neutral as between him and the sitting Members, who supported government. In this he was disappointed, but he ousted George Ogle after a keen contest. Government became uneasy about the Latouche family’s sense of grievance.
