Fr Niall Molloy

All these years later, the tragic death of Fr Niall Molloy in Kilcoursey House outside Clara, Co Offaly, still carries a strong whiff of scandal, cover-up and miscarriage of justice. Now a new book has resurrected the story so those fascinated by true crime can mull over the characteristics and contradictions surrounding a death that changed so many lives for ever.

Fr Molloy’s death has left a list of unanswered questions as long as the eight-foot “drag mark” of his blood on the carpet in the bedroom where he died.
