Fitzgerald, Owen

The owner of Hap House in County Cork, near Castle Richmond. He loved Lady Clara Desmond and considered himself engaged gaged to her, notwithstanding the opposition of Lady Desmond, who was herself in love with him.

"He was a very handsome man - tall, being somewhat over six feet in height - athletic, almost more than in proportion - with short, light, chestnut-tinted hair, blue eyes, and a mouth perfect as that of Phoebus. He was clever, too, though perhaps not educated as carefully as might have been: his speech was usually rapid, hearty, and short, and not seldom caustic and pointed" - Castle Richmond.
