On this day in 1985, the 52 year old Fr Molloy, died after being beaten at Kilcoursey House – the home of his friends Richard and Teresa Flynn – near Clara in Offaly.

A review by the serious crime team into the death of Roscommon priest Father Niall Molloy has been sent to the Director of Public Prosecution.

An anniversary mass for the Castlecoote priest is taking place on Sunday at Fuerty Church – his former parish.

Speaking to Shannonside News, Bill Maher says it’s very frustrating that they’re still waiting for justice.
