    In Ireland, he probably didn't get support because he was pretending to be an English king...while the real English monarchy had treated Ireland awfully for ages and there had been a Gaelic resurgence against England for a while. So anyone claiming to be an English king wasn't going to find support in Ireland.

    As for England he actually did get support by Pro-Yorkists, including Lord Fitzwalter and Sir Simon Montford, among others. Eventually another former supporter, Sir Robert Clifford, wrote back to King Henry revealing the names of those supporting Warbeck. Which as you can imagine didn't end well for him.

    TLDR; no Irish support because we hated the English monarchy, no lasting English support bc he was ratted out
