Molloy, or O'Molloy, Francis, was Professor of Divinity in the College of St. Isidore, at Rome, in the middle of the 17th century, and was author of several works in the Irish language. Lhuyd gives an abstract of Molloy's Grammatica Latino-Hibernica nunc Compendiata, 1677, in his Archaeologia Britannica, and says that it was the most complete Irish grammar then extant, although imperfect as to syntax.
