Baron Killanin


Baron Killanin

Baron Killanin, of Galway in the County of Galway, is a title in the Peerage of the United Kingdom. It was created in 1900 for the Irish lawyer and politician Michael Morris. He was Lord Chief Justice of Ireland from 1887 to 1889 and a Lord of Appeal in Ordinary from 1889 to 1900. Morris had already been created a Baronet in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom in 1885 and was made a life peer under the Appellate Jurisdiction Act 1876 in 1889 as Baron Morris, of Spiddal in the County of Galway. On his death in 1901 the life peerage became extinct while he was succeeded in the baronetcy and hereditary barony by his eldest son, the second Baron. He briefly represented Galway Borough in the House of Commons as a Conservative and also served as Lord Lieutenant of County Galway from 1918 to 1922. He was succeeded by his nephew, the third Baron, the son of George Henry Morris. He was a prominent author, journalist and sports official and served as President of the International Olympic Committee from between 1972 and 1980. As of 2007 the titles are held by his eldest son, the fourth Baron, who succeeded in 1999. He is a film producer.
