makes reference to the investigation and trial following the death of
Fr. Niall Molloy he says on page 285
“One of the imperative maxims of our law is that “not only must justice
be done, but it must be seen to be done“. It was not seen to be done in
this instance”

details of this case.

Frances Cahill Cover

In her controversial book about her father Martin Cahill ( The
General ) , Frances Cahill makes revelations about details of Niall’s
death , which she alleges, are contained in the DPP file which Martin
had access to.
She wrote

” My father recalled that the priest’s head had been bashed in with a
statue of a horse, information that alledgedly came from the DPP’s
file on the case”
“According to my father, the evidence in the files suggests that the
injuries sustained by the priest go slightly beyond banging ones head
on a bedpost”
