If would appear that there are many Meenan's in Ireland. After a brief period we found that my great grandfather James and grandfather Patrick Meenan were from Carrick, County Donegal. The family, for the most part, left Ireland in the early 1900's and settled in Montana before moving further west, e.g., Washington, California. There seems to be many other Meenan's that settled on the East coast but I haven't found any connection to the family in Carrick. We will be taking our 15th trip to Ireland in March. Maybe we'll find more relatives. The family remaining in Carrick are the Cunninghams. We are half cousins from a second family of my great grandfather.
