” Fr Molloy appeared to have been kicked on the left side of the lower jaw and the inside of the thigh. The injury on the right side of the lower jaw lends itself to possible causation by foot. The blow was possibly inflicted with a fist but a shod foot was more likely”
Richard Flynn testified that he was in bed and wearing pyjamas when the alleged attack took place. In bed with shoes on ?
