In July 1985 Niall's body was found in the blood spattered bedroom of a friend's house in Clara Co.Offaly, Ireland. He lay beside a long streak of his own blood, his face deeply cut, mutiple bruises to on his body and a severe head injury.A priest who was first to be called to the scene, reported Niall's death to the Police & asked "Is there any way you can keep it quiet" A man was eventually charged with his killing but the Judge who personally knew both Niall and the accused dismissed the case.The judge in his ruling stated that Niall had Heart Disease (not true) and it was possible Niall might have had a heart attack ( not true) He said" It's a little bit unusual but not improper of me to say that no one intended any injury to be caused"The Inquest Jury came back with the following "It is the unanimous verdict of the jury that Fr. Niall Molloy died as a result of acute brain haemorrage consistent with having suffered a serious injury to the head"In October 1988 Ian Maher sent two files to The Garda Commissioner in response to his request for new evidence. Both files contained medical opinions that Niall was left to die over a lengthy period of time. None of the people present called an ambulance.TheFamily,Parishioners and Friends of Niall still want Justice to be done and a full Public Inquiry into the events surrounding his killing and the subsequent cover up.
