The Taaffe family is rather remarkable for having held both an Irish/UK and Austrian peerage. However, it is not clear from the wiki pages whether they (for example, Count Eduard, who was Austrian prime-minister for a while) really maintained tangible ties to Ireland. Some questions for example:
- Did they have Irish estates?
- Did members of the family visit Ireland?
- Did they have strongly held and/or publicized views on issues of Irish politics? (like Home Rule)
