Elder brother of the painter Richard T. Moynan, RHA.

After attending school in Nice, he studied engineering at Trinity College, Dublin, where he obtained the BAI degree in 1874. He married Henrietta Elizabeth C. Knox at St Luke's church, Dublin, on 22 July 1886. According to his obituary in the Irish Builder he 'was a pioneer in the cause of road improvement and advocated steam-rolling and direct labour under the control of the surveyor in preference to the method of letting out the contracts in short sections to small farmers and others, which was the procedure usually followed by the Grand Juries in the days when they controlled this branch of work'. He worked as a county surveyor in the North Riding of Co. Tipperary for 38 years. He also ran a private engineering and architectural practice in partnership with ROBERT PAUL GILL from 1903. He died at his home, Island Bawn House, Nenagh, Co. Tipperary, in 1932 and was buried in Kilruane graveyard.
