Father Meehan died 1878

He is buried in the church at Moneen, I mile north of Kilbaha, County Clare. A side chapel here contains the Little Ark which was built in 1852 during the Time of the Soup by the local priest Father Meehan. As there was no Catholic church and as the only place where mass could be said was on the shore at Kilbaha, between high and low watermarks, it was celebrated in the Little Ark between 1852-7.
