Father Niall O’Brien was arrested in the Phillipines, along with two other priests and six lay workers – the so-called ‘Negros nine’, accused of five murders. When Ronald Reagan visited Ireland, he was asked if he could help the missionary priest. A call from the US administration to Ferdinand Marcos resulted in a pardon. He was greeted by his parents at Dublin Airport. Also in the picture are Cardinal Tomás O Fiach, Jim O’Keefe TD, Minister of State at the Department of Foreign Affairs, and Bishop Eamon Casey.
