Sir Boyle Roche, 1st Baronet, MP was a member of the Irish House of Commons. He is better remembered for the language of his speeches than his politics—they were riddled with mixed metaphors , malapropisms and other unfortunate turns of phrase . Roche may have been Richard Brinsley Sheridan's model for Mrs Malaprop. While arguing for a bill, Roche once said, "It would surely be better, Mr. Speaker, to give up not only a part, but, if necessary, even the whole, of our constitution, to preserve the remainder!"
