Speaking before the event, one of the organisers, cllr Adrienne Wallace said: “This is a shocking and callous act that has brutally robbed a young woman of her life, a family of their daughter and a community of a wonderful teacher. We want to stand in solidarity with Ashling’s grieving family and let them know the country is mourning with them. From Carlow to Tullamore, Ashling is in our thoughts.”
