Tributes have been paid to Offaly teacher Ashling Murphy who was fatally attacked on Wednesday while out jogging along a canal towpath.
As reported in The Irish Times, bouquets of flowers and a candle were left on the bank of the Grand Canal in Tullamore, close to where Ms Murphy was killed.
One unsigned message from a local person, which was left with flowers, read: “You were one of the kindest girls I’ve met. Always helpful, always had a smile on your face. You were a great mentor on and off the pitch. Fly high angel. Rest in Peace.”
Superintendent Eamonn Curley said at a news briefing: “At this stage, there is no information that the victim and her killer were known to each other. “From our enquiries we have carried out, we believe this crime was committed by one male who acted alone.”
The principal of Durrow NS where Ms Murphy taught first class, James Hogan, described the newly qualified teacher as “a shining light”.
“Her pupils adored her,” he told RTÉ radio’s News at One.
Children had been coming into school this morning with tears in their eyes, he said, while she was not there, she was not forgotten by her class or her colleagues.
