Fr Niall Molloy
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.
Photograph of Fr Niall at a wedding in his Parish on Saturday 6th July 1985. He was attacked and beaten within 36 hours of this photograph being taken. He was left to die for a number of hours before Gardai were called to the scene despite the fact that there were medical people present when the attack happened.
