His chaplaincy during the First World War was in France, where many of his parishioners had gone before him. When he returned, his health was still affected by poison gas introduced by the Germans as a war weapon in 1915. Having seen many fine lads go insane in the trenches, living in scenes of terror and slaughter, he had a lifelong sympathy for people with mental problems. As chaplain to the Little Sisters of the Poor, he used a weekly column, dedicated to the Little Flower, for those suffering from psychiatric problems.
He was a regular contributor to the Irish Ecclesiastical Record.
In February1989, following the closure of St. Mary’s Home, Cork, his remains were exhumed and re-interred at the Little Sisters of the Poor Cemetery, Manor Hill, Waterford City.
