The History of St Clerans


This book, in three parts, is the brain-child of Mr. Merv Griffin, owner of St. Clerans who commissioned William Henry to write it. Although an extremely busy man in the entertainment and business world, he still manages to make time for the cultural aspects of life. By restoring the historic manor house at St. Clerans, and having this book published on virtually every aspect of its history and folklore, Merv Griffin has made a very valuable contribution to the world of Irish history and folklore.
