Newspapers Freeman's Journal. 30/03/1920. A Military Funeral. The military authorities have known taken steps to dispose of the remains of Private Byran Fergus Molloy, who was shot in South William Street last Wednesday evening. The remains still lie at Mercer's Hospital, no claimant having come forward, and it appears that his relatives cannot be traced. A military funeral will be accorded the remains to-day at 2 o'clock. Although the military authorities have some knowledge of Molloy's antecedents they seem unable to get into communication with any relatives. The mystery surrounding the identity of the young man, and the circumstances of his unhappy end, have been only partially dissipated by the proceedings at the inquest.
