Letter to Commissioner O’Sullivan ( Irish Police ) – Second Letter

Commissioner Noirin O’Sullivan
Garda HQ
Phoenix Park,
Dublin
10th April 2015

Dear Commissioner,

I still have not had the courtesy of a reply to my email sent to you last Monday. Could you please explain  your statement last week where you hoped the McGinn Report would bring “Some comfort to the family”
My family were distressed by your comments which were widely reported in the media.
We were told that your appointment would mean changes in the Gardai. Mr. Callinan also failed to answer letters. It is simply not good enough. You as Garda Commissioner  made the statement either justify it or make a public apology to the Molloy family.
My family have had enough to deal with over the past 30 years. We do not need this.

Regards,

Bill Maher

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 ????

Comment from Commissioner Nōirin O’Sullivan

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
