Vigils are being held across the country in memory of Ashling Murphy.

The 23 year-old school teacher was killed while jogging along the Grand Canal in Tullamore this week, in what's believed to be a random attack.

Ashling Murphy plays during the 2017 Comhaltas Concert Tour of Ireland.

Ashling was out exercising along a busy stretch of the canal between Boland's Lock and Digby Bridge when she was attacked at around 4pm.

The area between the canal entrance at Main Street and Boland's Lock has been sealed off ahead of a forensic investigation.
