Peter Clarke is from Coleraine, Co Derry. His father was from Howth, in North Dublin and he married Eithne Marsh, whose father owned Woodtown Park. He later recalls the history of the house, and is deeply engrossed in its preservation and conservation. Happily it has retained its former splendour. He describes the difficulties of trying to preserve one of our national treasures, and also speaks about some of the extraordinary secrets the house holds within its four walls.
