Charles and Sally Meehan

The reason I have noted this baptism is because of the sponsors, they appear also for the baptism of Patrick Meehan, this Charles is either the brother or father of Neil.  Having checked Griffiths Valuation for that period I note that a Charles Meehan is listed in Carricknamart. My father Patrick Meehan, remarked to me in a conversation before his death that the Dohertys came from Carricknamart, however this may have been the Meehans.
