A biography of Archbishop Clune, fourth bishop and first archbishop of Perth, Western Australia.

Patrick Joseph Clune was typical of the men who governed the Australian Catholic Church in the first third of the 1900s. Born and educated in a lower middle-class rural family in Victorian Ireland, Archbishop Clune belonged to the last generation of Irish-Australian builder bishops presiding in Perth over vigorous parochial, educational and social welfare expansion. He stood out from his episcopal collagues.
