1 Garda Siochana – Flooding. I would be most unusual for flooding to be able to cherry pick files and only destroy some of them.
2 DPP – File stolen by The General. The file was later recovered by the Gardai after doing a deal with Martin Cahill to release one of his associates from prison. File was given back to DPP but there is no longer any trace of it.
THE DPP ALSO INSTRUCTED THE GARDAI NOT TO INCLUDE NIALL’S SOLICITORS STATEMENT IN THE BOOK OF EVIDENCE.
3 State Pathologist’s Office – No documents exist anymore. Reason given was that the might have been lost when they moved premises
4 Coroner’s Office – There was a break in. The burgler selected a small number of files and set fire to them on a desk top. Fr Niall’s was one of the files.
