Somers, Mr

The agent at Castle Richmond, and Chairman of the Relief Committee for the famine sufferers.

"He was a large, heavy, consequential man, always very busy, as though aware of being one of the most important wheels that kept the Irish clock agoing; but he was honest, kind-hearted in the main, true as steel to his employers, and good-humoured--as long as he was allowed to have his own way" - Castle Richmond.
