A nephew of murdered Roscommon priest Father Niall Molloy says he’s disappointed at the lack of action taken on the case since a meeting with the Justice Minister last year.
Bill Maher and other members of the Molloy family met with Frances Fitzgerald last July, as they continue to seek answers into his death.
Fr Molloy’s nephew believes photos of the 52 year old’s body contradict witness statements taken during the investigation.
Nobody has been convicted in connection with his death which occurred at the home of Richard and Therese Flynn in Clara, Co Offaly, on July 8th, 1985.
Mr Maher is fearful that the issue will be lost as the election campaign gets underway:
FR. NIALL MOLLOY NEPHEW CONCERNED AS DETAILS OF UNPUBLISHED REVIEW EMERGE
1st December 2014
A nephew of Fr. Niall Molloy is calling on the Justice Minister and her department to provide clarity on a review of the garda cold case files into the death of the Roscommon priest.
The Sunday Times says the as-yet unpublished report, drawn up by senior counsel Dominic McGinn, has found no evidence to back up allegations of a garda cover up during the investigation.
Fr. Molloy was found beaten to death in Kilcoursey House, Clara, Co. Offaly in July 1985 following a wedding and to date, nobody has been convicted of his killing.
Minister Frances Fitzgerald said two weeks ago that she is considering the findings of the report in consultation with the Office of the Attorney General.
Bill Maher, Fr. Molloy’s nephew, is questioning where information concerning the review is coming.
