Fr Niall Molloy bloodstains. ( What Bloodstains ? )

 

 

 

Bloodstains. Fr Niall Molloy

(Photograph shows bloodstains clearly visible on the carpet beside the body of Fr Niall Molloy)

 

Under cross examination at the Inquest Dr. Dan O’Sullivan was asked –

192. And you saw a fair amount of signs of blood around the bedroom ?

I didn’t notice any blood around the bedroom.

193. You didn’t notice any blood around the bedroom ?

No

 

 

Fr Deignan said in his statement that he noticed “bloodstains on the carpet nearby”

Sgt. Ford Said in his statement ” I lifted the towel and saw that there was blood on the dead man’s face, I also noticed that his upper lip burst and there was a cut on the lower left jaw “

Sgt. Forde went on to describe blood stains he had noticed in other areas of the room.

 

Dr. Harbison also mentioned  “blood staining on the floor, over a distance of 8ft.to 9 ft”

Bloodstains and marks were also detailed by Gardai who did a forensic examination of the scene.

 

And Dr. O’Sullivan saw no bloodstains. ?????????

Richard Flynn was questioned at the Inquest

457. Mr. Flynn did you clean the wounds on Fr. Molloy’s face ?                         – No

458. When you went to whisper an act of contrition in his ear did you notice his face ?

– No

458. can I ask you how it is you came not to notice his face at the time ?

-Because his head was turned over on his right side and I whispered an act of contrition into his left ear.

460. Why didn’t you turn him over ?

– Because his ear, his left ear was nearest to me and I whispered an act of contrition into his left ear.

 

I have seen the Garda photographs of the room and of Niall’s body. It is quite obvious from those photographs that there was a considerable amount of blood present. It is also obvious that someone attempted a clean up.

We gave copies of the photographs to Minister for Justice, Frances Fitzgerald last July, She has not reponded despite promising to do so after the Summer break in 2015

Update : August 2016. Still no response from Frances Fitzgerald.

Who did call the Doctor for Fr. Molloy ?

Dr O’Sullivan from Kilbeggan was the Dr. who was called to Kilcoursey House to attend to Niall on the night of his terrible death. There is no doubt that O’Sullivan was in the house that night BUT there seems to be a lot of confusion as to who actually called him.

 

Within a week of Niall’s death my late brother Ian Maher called to see Dr Dan O’Sullivan in his home. Dr O’Sullivan was the Flynn family doctor and  was a friend of the family as well as Niall.In an interview with a reporter at the time Ian said ” Dr. Dan told me the first thing he knew was at about 1.15a.m., and this is very vivid in my mind, he said that he had forgotten to switch the telephone from the surgery up to the bedroom and at about a quarter past one – he was very specific about that -the front door was hammered on very loudly. It was David” recalled Ian Maher

” I didn’t know who David was even at this stage”

Ian then went to the Tyrellspass Hotel and I spoke to him on the phone. He told me about his conversation with the Dr. and asked me if I knew who David Flynn was. I had not heard of him before that night.

In the interview Ian continued “Then I rang the Gardai.  I rang   Garda Michael Fox  and told him about my conversation with Dr. Dan. And he said ” Say that again.” Ian replied ” the first person to call to Dr O’Sullivan’s house was David.’ Ian asked him who David was and he said ‘that’s Richard Flynn’s son.’

At the Inquest Dr O’Sullivan denied that he had told Ian Maher that David Flynn had called him that night. He said that when he opened the door that night Fr. Deignan was there with one of the Flynn daughters. It was about 1:50 am

FROM THE INQUEST

183. Was David Flynn at the door ?

 – No

184. Didn’t you tell Ian Maher that David Flynn was the first one who woke you up ?

 – No.

10.2.4 Report of Dominic McGinn     Page 64

” He ( David Flynn ) insisted that it was his father who called Dr, O’Sullivan to the scene “

 

At about 2:00am I was called by Fr Duignan and Miss Zanda Flynn, Clara, and  asked to come to Miss Flynn’s home at Clara to attend Father Molloy. She said that he was dead——————— Dr O’Sullivan, Statement

The Gardai never picked up on these contradictions. Nor have Journalists who have gone through all the papers as I have. My late brother Ian was NEVER called as a witness despite all the valuable information he gave to the Gardai. There is no statement from him in the Book of Evidence. Why was he excluded ?

SO WHO DID CALL THE DOCTOR THAT NIGHT ?

 

 

 

There are other major contradictions in the statements from various witnesses. None of which seem to have been examined in any detail. I will be posting more in the coming days.
