I have no idea, will muse on it some more..

Something just popped into me head tho, clare da loon, forgive me I can't recall how to spell it correctly so just phonetically wrote it, it was either something I read inna book or music....

This is probably irrelevant to the clue...

I just can't resist showing my lack solving cryptic clueness as evidenced by adieu...*chuckles*

Must be fun watching lesser minds stretch...smiley - winkeye

Clare - that's more than cryptic, it's downright obtuse!

John Clare (phsychiatrist's chair)?

As a name it means 'bright' - anything to do with flowers?

I reckon that maybe it has something to do with an anagram of clare, such as 'clear' and something to do with Ireland...

Those backwards clues are always sods.

Well done Lucky Star for getting "adieu".

Dredging up old clue:

Q: Tries out wrong-doing first; that's inauspicious
A: sinister

Yvonne was slightly wrong on this. It's "ister" (anagram of tries) preceded by ("first") sin.
