complete list of vigils taking place across island of Ireland

Vigils will be held across most counties in Ireland this evening as people gather in memory of dominant school teacher Ashling Murphy.

The 23-year-old was killed on Wednesday afternoon as she jogged along the edges of the Grand Canal at Cappincur in Co Offaly, with her murder triggering extensive outpourings of grief and anger.

Vigils will be held into the weekend, including in London, on an island off the Irish coast, online, and at the school in Tullamore where Ms Murphy was a teacher.
