Prendergast, Mr

The friend and London attorney of Sir Thomas Fitzgerald, who acted for Sir Thomas in dealing with the Molletts.

"He was short of stature, well made, and in good proportion; he was wiry, strong, and almost robust.... His hair was grizzled, and his whiskers were grey, and round about his mouth his face was wrinkled; but with him even these things hardly seemed, to be signs of old age. He was said by many ... to be a stern man.... But he had also the reputation of being a very just man. ... He was a handsome man too, with clear, bright, gray eyes, a well-defined nose, and expressive mouth." - Castle Richmond
