Cork GAA groundsman pays amazing tribute to Ashling Murphy

January 17, 2022

In memory of Ashling Murphy.

A groundsman at a GAA club in Cork has gone to great lengths to pay his respects to Ashling Murphy.

Ballinlough GAA head groundsman Cathal Browne mowed Ashling's name and a heart into the centre of the pitch before sharing the striking image with Cork's 96FM.

Many tributes have been paid to the 23-year-old teacher, musician and Kilcormac/Killoughey camogie player at GAA grounds and sports venues since her murder last Wednesday shocked the country.

The Antrim hurlers showed a touch of class before yesterday's Walsh Cup clash with Offaly in Tullamore by laying flowers along the canal bank where her life was taken. And just before the throw-in, players from both Offaly and Antrim formed the letter 'A' on the pitch, the idea for which is believed to have come from Offaly manager Michael Fennelly.
