Ashling Murphy was murdered as she was going for a run along the Royal Canal in Tullamore in Co. Offaly. Ashling’s brutal killing has sparked Nationwide and Worldwide outrage as the REAL daily fears that women face has come to the fore. For so long the focus has been on what women should do to avoid harm; ‘don’t walk at night’, ‘keep keys in your hand’, ‘cross to the other path if you see a man coming’, ‘text me when you’re home’.
This needs to change. Every woman should have the right to be safe both in their own homes and in their communities.
We are asking you to come together to stand up for all women. On 6th March we will be hosting walks and runs across the Nation to finish Ashling’s run. Show your support and be part of the change.
Where do the funds go?
Funds raised will go to Women’s Aid, a national frontline organisation working to prevent and address the impact of domestic violence and abuse. In 2020 there were 24,893 disclosures of abuse against women. Since 1996, 244 women have been killed with 87% of resolved cases being perpetrated by a man known to the victim. 13% of perpetrators were strangers.
