Gardaí investigating the murder of Ashling Murphy are set to cross-check DNA samples taken from the crime scene and a mountain bike found close by with those taken from a man being treated in hospital in Dublin for a number of injuries. 

Justice Minister Helen McEntee has said a new national strategy to tackle domestic, sexual, and gender-based violence in the wake of the murder of Ashling Murphy will be introduced in the coming weeks, with the intention of adopting a zero-tolerance policy for violence against women. In reaction to this, we were joined on the show by Orla O’Connor Director of the National Women’s Council.
