Born 1732; died Dec. 2, 1791, in Farmley, County Kilkenny. Irish political figure; one of the leaders of the liberal opposition to the English ruling power.

A barrister by profession, Flood was a member of the Irish Parliament from 1759 to 1790 and of the English Parliament from 1783 to 1790. From 1775 to 1781 he held various posts under the English government in Ireland. Together with H. Grattan, he supported mostly moderate reforms and in the early 1780’s called for parliamentary autonomy in Ireland; the latter was achieved in 1782–83 but was abolished in 1801.
