Archdeacon of Monmouth (1930–1940)
Monahan was educated at St Andrew’s College, Dublin and Trinity College, Dublin and ordained in 1905. He was Assistant Missioner at the Wellington College Mission, Walworth and then Curate of St Swithun and Old St Martin, Worcester. He was then successively the Vicar (1912–1930), Archdeacon ( 1930–1940) and finally Bishop of Monmouth (1940–1945). He died in post on 10 August 1945.
Manohan has been described as "a firm churchman of authoritarian personality who attracted and repelled according to taste, but he was a strong and effective teacher, preacher and spiritual director". The 1928 Prayer Book was the basis for his compilation The Churchpeople's Prayer Book. Bishop Monahan accepted the principle of reservation of the blessed sacrament in church and also permitted devotional services of Benediction.
