Name of creator
Michael A. Clancy (1850-1904), Catholic priest, was born at Ennis, County Clare, Ireland in 1850. He died in Ireland in 1904.
Clancy completed his primary, elementary and high school education in the national school system of Ireland. He was ordained a priest in Newfoundland on 14 November 1871.
Rev. Clancy was initially appointed as curate in Sacred Heart Parish, Placentia, and, subsequently, as a professor at St. Bonaventure's College, St. John's. In 1876 he was transferred to Holy Trinity Parish, Ferryland, as parish priest. In 1883 Rev. Clancy was appointed as the parish priest of Sacred Heart Parish, Placentia (1883-97). During his active ministry there he worked assiduously to promote education through the construction of schools in every section of the parish. He also supervised the erection of a new parish church.
Clancy was a delegate to the National Convention held in Ireland in 1896. He retired from active pastoral ministry and returned to Ireland in 1897.
