Ashling Murphy remembered with 'beautiful gesture'

The Offaly flag flies proudly

The Kilcormac/Killoughey camogie team remembered their much-missed team-mate Ashling Murphy with a lovely gesture last Saturday.

The team warmed up in training tops with number 23 on the back before their Offaly senior camogie ‘B’ semi-final defeat to Naomh Bríd in Birr. Ashling died last January after she was violently assaulted while out for a run in Tullamore.

In a post on Facebook, the club said: "Our Senior Camogie Panel pictured before today’s Senior B semi-final vs Naomh Brid wearing their new training tops in memory of their beloved and dearly missed friend and team-mate Ashling Murphy.

"Ashling’s presence is fiercely felt every time they take to the field and this jersey is a physical and tangible representation of that. The number 23 represents Ashling’s age and ’Ní Bheidh a Leithéid Ann Arís’ is written across the back.

"A beautiful gesture by her forever friends."
