Galway Daily news Three people arrested in connection with serious assault

An Garda Síochána have said that ‘significant progress’ is being made in their investigation into the murder of Ashling Murphy.

Gardaí have appealed for any information on a man dressed in a black tracksuit top with no hood, black tracksuit bottoms with a large white stripe or white writing on the side, and black runners.

Gardaí are eager to speak to anyone who noticed this man loitering at any location or involved in any activity which drew their attention.

Anyone who gave a lift to this man, or saw him walking in the Tullamore area, is asked to make contact with Gardaí.

Gardaí are continuing to appeal to any person in the general Tullamore area on the 12 January 2022 with any form of video footage to contact them.

Gardaí are still waiting to interview a man in connection with the murder.

An Garda Síochána also said that they are aware and concerned about the activity of people sharing information on social media, and in particular private messaging apps.

They appealed to everyone to stop sharing these messages.

“Not only are they misinformed, inaccurate and dangerous, they are unhelpful to the criminal investigation,” they said.

“If you have information, which is relevant to this criminal investigation you should contact the investigation team at Tullamore Garda Station with this information.”

The investigation team at Tullamore Garda Station can be contacted on 9357060, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111, or any Garda Station.
