The funeral is taking place of Richard Flynn, the Offaly man accused of the manslaughter of Father Niall Molloy at his home in Kilcoursey, Clara on 8 July 1985.

Mr Flynn and his wife Theresa were questioned by gardaí after the death of the Roscommon priest in the bedroom of their home in Co Offaly but the manslaughter charges against him never proceeded after a judge withdrew the case from a trial jury in June 1986.

Mr Flynn had been ill for several years and died over the weekend. His funeral is being held today in Tubberclair, Co Westmeath.

His remains will be interred afterwards beside those of his wife Theresa Flynn.
