Vigils in memory of Ashling Murphy will take place in Dublin and other cities around the country over the coming days.
The 23-year-old school teacher was attacked and killed while out for a run along a busy stretch of canal in Tullamore yesterday afternoon.
Floral tributes have been left at the scene of the attack, with one reading "you were one of the kindest girls I've ever met"
The National Women's Council of Ireland is organising a vigil for Ashling outside Dáil Éireann from 4-5 pm tomorrow.
The group says the vigil will be held "to remember Ashling and to support all who knew and loved her".
Organisers are encouraging those who attend to bring flowers or candles, and to make sure to wear face masks and keep socially distant.
They added: "Lots of people who can’t be at the vigil in person - can you wherever you are at 4.30pm light a candle in remembrance of Ashling, and we will have a minute’s silence at the vigil at this time."
An event in Tullamore is scheduled to take place in the local town park at the same time as the Dublin vigil:

A vigil will take place at 6pm tomorrow in Arthur's Quay Park in Limerick.
In Cork, a vigil is planned for Saturday morning, while another is planned for Eyre Square in Galway this evening.
Meanwhile, the Justice Minister today described Ashling Murphy’s death as “every woman and family’s worst nightmare”.
Helen McEntee said: “I know people are feeling shocked but also angry, and I share that anger.
“This is a woman’s worst nightmare - while no woman should have to take measures when they’re going out and about to stay safe, Ashling was out during the day.
“It was bright, there was a lot of people about, and she was in an area local people always felt was safe.”
Minister McEntee said women shouldn’t be the only group taking steps to create a safer society and that men must take action also.
