Hundreds of people attended a vigil in memory of Ashling Murphy in Galway last night.

The crowd gathered at the Browne Archway at the top of the public plaza.

Many brought flowers and candles to commemorate the 23-year-old teacher, who was murdered in Tullamore yesterday.

Organisers explained that people wanted to remember the short life of Ms Murphy and were tired of having to deal with various forms of harassment.

They called for a society-wide discussion to ensure boys and men did not feel it was okay to engage in any form of abuse.
