This July marks the 35th Anniversary of Niall’s Murder in Clara, Co Offaly in Kilcoursey House – home of the Flynn family. Many of the family still refuse to talk about what happened in the house that night or why none of them called for medical assistance for Niall as he lay dying for a number of hours
Due to the lockdown there has not been a lot of activity on the case in recent months. However things are still going on in the background.
Number of daily views still continue on this site proving that there still is an interest in the case as we head towards the 35th anniversary in July.

The 34th anniversary Mass for Fr Niall will take place next Sunday 25th August 11:30am. in Fuerty, Co, Roscommon. Prayers will be said at the graveside after the Mass. Niall was buried, at the request of his parishioners, beside the Church in Fuerty.
Fr Molloy was murdered in Kilcoursey, Co. Offaly in 1985. The family continue to fight for Justice for Fr Niall and for the full facts surrounding his death.
One year ago today The Garda Ombudsman published their report.
As is usual with our justice system there has been no reaction to it. The Garda Commissioner has not made any public statement as to it’s findings. Charlie Flanagan has dismissed us in the same fashion as Frances Fitzgerad did.
It is really not good enough.
On this day in 1985 my family got a phone call to say that Niall was dead. I was initially told that it was an accident. I thought Niall, a keen horseman, must have had a fall from a horse.
In the next phone call that I was informed that it was not an accident …there was a lot of blood at the scene. Rumours started to circulate, some of them I believe were deliberately started in order to cover up what actually happened.
The full truth of what happened that night has never been made public.
In true form for Ministers of Justice we are waiting for a reply to our letter from Charlie Flanagan T. D. After our meeting with his predecessor Frances Fitzgerald she would not reply and we had to contact the ombudsman.

Call to make Molloy murder case ‘a priority’
Fine Gael’s chairman has called on the DPP to treat the Fr Niall Molloy murder case as an “immediate priority”.
Charlie Flanagan TD issued the appeal after it emerged a garda file on the 1985 killing had been sent to the state prosecutor. Mr Flanagan said that answers were “long overdue in a case that strikes at the heart of the criminal justice system”.
Fr Molloy (52) died from head injuries after a brutal beating in the Offaly mansion of his friends, Richard and Therese Flynn. The murder took place shortly after their daughter’s wedding, which was attended by several high-profile politicians. Allegations of a cover-up, flawed investigation and political interference have surrounded the case ever since.
