This is a letter sent to my Uncle Billy Molloy, Niall’s brother. I have deleted parts because it makes reference to people who are still alive.
Dear Mr Molloy,
i feel I must write to you. I happened to be at the wedding in Co. Offaly as a waiter on the day tout brother died. There was a row early in the evening where Fr Niall and Mr Flynn were fighting downstairs. Mrs Flynn got between them to stop them. As Fr Niall was bleeding she took him upstairs to clean him up and Mr Flynn followed.While Mrs flynn was trying to clean him up the row started again. Mrs Flynn kicked and boxed Fr Niall in the room at about 9pm. Every one seemed to go away. Mr Flynn was drunk there was some heated row with both Mr Mrs Flynn at that time the casual staff were paid and told to go. Some bottles were broken in the first fight. Mrs Flynns daughter cleaned the mess up. Fr Niall was alive at 9:30 but was bleeding a lot. Don’t forget that the Judge in charge is a friend of Mrs, Mr Flynn and he has horses in trying with Liam XXXXX at the Curragh. wish I could help further but that is all know.Father was a nice man i only met him at the wedding.
He was murdered in cold blood
I can’t give my name as I depend on big functions for living
