Speaking on the Joe Finnegan show, Co-Author of the book, Maresa Fagan says that even today, there are more questions than answers.

"There's so much to this story. It's coming up to 40 years since Fr Niall Molloy was killed and his death remains unsolved. When you lay it all out, there are even more questions today than answers then there were in 1985. It was a different time and a different place then, and that's what we also capture in the book".
