Appeal for Material for Documentary on Fr. Niall

The producers of a 2-part RTE documentary on the death/case of Fr. Niall Molloy are looking for photos, videos or memorabilia to show Fr. Niall over the years.

Of particular interest is his time spent in the Army, based in Custume Barracks in Athlone between 1970 and 1975, with a tour of Cyprus with the 23rd Battalion from November 1972-April 1973.

He was also an accomplished horseman, and attended county shows as an entrant and judge. He took part in hunts, particularly in the midlands and west, and was Chef d‘Equipe of the Irish Pony Club team. Perhaps there are photos from his time competing in gymkhanas as a young man, right up to the Dublin Horse Show in 1984.

As a priest, he also officiated at many baptisms, Communions, Confirmations and Weddings, so maybes there are family photos of those occasions.

If you have anything you think might be of interest to the production, please contact sharon@flawlessfilms.ie or 087 2483464. All materials loaned to the production will be treated with the upmost care and returned safely.

Gardai – No Comment after two years

The Garda Ombudsman published a report into the Fr Niall Molloy case in July 2018. They were critical of the Gardai in their handling of the case. Lost evidence, files etc.

We were assured that the Gardai would issue a statement in response to their findings.

It is now over two years and no statement has been made by them.
