adrian meaney 

It is with great sadness that we inform you of the death of our brother, Adrian Meaney.

Adrian has been in and out of hospital over the past couple of weeks with infections and complications.

He was placed in intensive care with kidney failure and liver problems. He died just before 11pm last night. John Kelliher and others  visited him and Adrian’s cousin Mary and her husband George were with him. Adrian’s younger brother Damian and his daughter Helen arrived from Brisbane this morning.

We posted this tribute to Adrian on the site on the occasion of his 85th birthday December 5th last.


Professed, 26th February, 1955, ordained (with his brother, Basil, of Brisbane archdiocese), June 29th, 1961.

Adrian spent many years in the Northern Territory, especially in Alice Springs, and many years in PNG, especially in Bereina and Port Moresby, including work for the Papal visit there in 1995 for the beatification of Peter To Rot.

His principal focus for the many more recent years is the MSC Mission Office.

In Vietnam at the time of his last birthday.
