New pressure on Shatter for Molloy inquiry

 IRISH INDEPENDENT  GEMMA O’DOHERTY – 18 APRIL 2013Justice Minister Alan Shatter has come under renewed pressure to set up a public inquiry into the murder of Fr Niall Molloy (pictured).

Speaking in the Seanad yesterday, Roscommon senator John Kelly said the case was “the biggest cover-up in the history of the State”.

A media report this week claimed that a two-and-a-half year review by the Garda Cold Case Unit into the 1985 murder had recommended an independent inquiry into the killing of the 52-year-old priest, who was beaten to death following a society party in Clara, Co Offaly.
