"Removal on Tuesday to arrive at St. Brigid's Church, Mountbolus, for Requiem Mass at 11am. Burial afterwards in Lowertown Cemetery, Mountbolus. Family flowers only, please. House strictly private on Tuesday, please,” the notice stated.

It said that Ashling is sadly missed by her “heartbroken” family, dad Raymond, mum Kathleen, brother Cathal, sister Amy, boyfriend Ryan, aunts, uncles, cousins, extended family, neighbours and friends.

Primary school teacher Ms Murphy was murdered at around 4pm last Wednesday as she went for a run alongside the Grand Canal near Tullamore, Co Offaly.

Her death has sparked a wave of nationwide and international grief, leading to hundreds of vigils being held across Ireland and among the Irish diaspora globally.

Vigils will take place in cities as far away as Vancouver today to remember Ashling, and to call for action on violence against women.
