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 firstname.lastname@example.org or 087 2483464. All materials loaned to the production will be treated with the upmost care and returned safely.

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.

The site is being visited daily and has now reached 137,000 views. Because of the high level of interest in the case I will post more information over the coming winter months.
As early as July 1985 the Gardaí in Tullamore wrote to the DPP ( 31st July 1985 ) and informed him of the cause of death. This was obviously based on Dr. Harrison’s Post Mortem report. Why did the DPP not follow up on this as a matter of urgency ?
