A follower on Twitter @smackovsky brought this to my attention today.

Report for the year ended ,1985.

Roscommon Herald, 28th April, 2015
A comment from our Garda Commissioner Noirín O’Sullivan
Garda Commissioner Noirin O’Sullivan said she hoped the report would bring some comfort to Fr Molloy’s family and it had also vindicated some of the work of the garda review team.
But she felt that, 30 years on, it was unlikely that inquiries would shed any new light.
“Some comfort to Fr Molloy’s family” . honestly what is this woman talking about ?
“Vindicated some of the work of the Garda review team”
What exactly does she mean by this statement ????
On the McGinn report, she said she was also very conscious there was a bereaved family at the centre of the case.
She said she hoped the report would bring some comfort to the family.
It appeared the work of the serious crime review team had been vindicated but she said she took no comfort from that.
She said if anyone had any new information on the death of Fr Molloy they could come forward with it, but she said she did not think it was right to hold out hope, 30 years later that new evidence was likely to establish anything new.
Can anyone explain her statement to me . New evidence is EVIDENCE
