Here are all the vigils taking place for Ashling Murphy today

Sarah McKenna Barry

Over 50 vigils are set to take place.

Today will see a number of vigils take place for Ashling Murphy, the 23-year-old woman who was murdered in Tullamore earlier this week.

Ms Murphy was out jogging at the time when she was attacked by the Grand Canal. A man who was initially arrested in connection with the murder has since been released and Gardaí say that he is “no longer a suspect”.

The first vigil in honour of Ashling took place last night in Eyre Square in Galway and many more are expected to take place today.

A candlelight vigil organised by the National Women’s Council will be held outside Leinster House in Dublin at 4pm today, but vigils are also being arranged throughout the country both today and over the weekend.
