On Wednesday evening, the news broke of Ashling Murphy's senseless murder as she ran along a local walkway in broad daylight.
The news of the 23 year old teacher murdered in a random attack has left so many of us feeling angry, helpless and heartbroken. Ashling was attacked as she ran along Fiona's Way, a trail named after Fiona Pender - a 25 year old Tullamore woman who went missing in 1996.
For those looking to remember Ashling Murphy and call for an end to male violence against women, here's a list of the vigils we know of being held across the country.
A vigil will take place in Ashling's home town of Tullamore today (14th) in Tullamore Town Park, from 4-5pm.
