Aidan Moffitt and Michael Snee were both murdered in Sligo this week.

Vigils are to take place across the country today in memory of Aidan Moffitt and Michael Snee, who were both murdered in Sligo this week.

Yesterday evening 22-year-old Yousef Palani appeared in court charged with the murder of the two men, and the assault of a third in Sligo.

Officers are understood to be examining the suspect's online dating history, as they probe whether both Michael and Aidan met their attacker on a dating app.

They're also investigating if there was a homophobic motive behind the attacks on both men.

Vigils, organised by the LBGTQ+ community, are being held in Dublin, Cork, and Galway, along with many other provincial locations this evening.

The Dublin memorial will take place 6pm outside the Dáil.
