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.
