Reasons given for possible loss of files in Fr Niall Molloy case

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.

A report this week claimed that vital evidence in the case of the Castlecoote native, who was killed at a house in Clara in Offaly in 1985, has gone missing.

GSOC began inquiries into the case after a complaint by a nephew of Fr Molloy who believed that the initial investigation into the death may have been flawed

The report claims that vital exhibits, as well as documents, have gone missing – despite the case still being an ‘active investigation’.

The matter was raised in the Dail this afternoon by Roscommon TD Eugene Murphy, who demanded to know what the government was going to do about the report’s findings:
