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.
On Page 17 of the McGinn Report under the heading
3.4 Statements Made by members of the Flynn Family Mr McGinn states that ” Perhaps unsurprisingly, these statements are entirely consistent with each other”
Mr McGinn does not explain why the statement of May Quinn , a family member who resided in the house, was not included with other family statements handed to the Gardai on July 15th. There is no record of when her actual statement was given to the Gardai.
That is not so and in fact there are inconsistencies and contradictions on times and movements of people. Coupled with the medical evidence from various experts these statements are very much in doubt.
In fact there are contradictions all over the place when you compare all the statements given to the Gardai. Obviously no one has ever bothered to examine them in detail.
It is actually quite appaling that all the people Gardai, Legal people, & Journalists never bothered to examine all the statements in any detail at all. The exception being Gary Agnew from RTE who almost 30 years ago mentioned conflicting statements in an Today Tonight report which can be seen on YouTube
