CLARKE, MICHAEL *
- Born: - Died: 1900
Building contractor of Ballaragh, Avoca, Co. Wicklow and Church Street, Wicklow Town. According to the notice of his death in the Wicklow Newsletter of 17 March 1900, he erected some of the finest bridges in that county and the Catholic church at Aughrim, Co. Wicklow. He was probably related to the builder John Clarke (d.1902) of Church Street, Wicklow,(1) and perhaps also to William Clarke, whose name crops up in the Wicklow Newsletter as a contractor from 1902 onwards (2) and who had premises in Church Street in the 1930s.(3)
