Ashling Murphy: Runners stop silently remembering the murdered joggers and school teachers | World News

Runners across the island of Ireland have stopped remembering Ashling Murphy, whose murder shocked the country.

Irish police continue to search for the murderer of a 23-year-old elementary school teacher who was found dead after going on a run on the Jinghang Waterway in Tullamore, Offaly.

Garda said he had made “significant progress” in the investigation, but did not disclose details for operational reasons.

All night planned for the weekend

Hundreds of people also gathered in Cork for the rally, and weekends were further planned in towns and villages.

Alerts are also planned in London.

Ireland’s Deputy Prime Minister Leo Varadkar said: “For men, we need to understand that violence against women is never justified and teach boys.

“It doesn’t matter who she is, where she is, what she was doing, and when it is. It never justifies. It’s always wrong.”

Solidarity show

The show of solidarity came after thousands of people gathered on Friday at a show that united the sadness and disgust of the murder. This is described as the “watershed moment” of the campaign to end violence against women.

Murphy’s family attended Candlelight Vigil near the murder scene on Friday night.

At the event, her father, Ray Murphy, paid tribute to the talented young musician by playing her favorite song in a banjo.

He wept while playing the final chord of “When You Were Sweet Sixteen.”

Murphy, along with his wife Kathleen and daughter Amy, walked across the canal where her daughter was killed on Wednesday.

Murder raises new debate about violence against women

Politicians have promised police that all the resources needed to find the murderer will be provided.

The death of Ms. Murphy sparked a new debate about the safety of Irish women, and many asked how such an attack could occur in the daytime.
