Ashling Murphy Memorial Fund

The Ashling Murphy Memorial Fund has been set up in memory of the late Ashling Murphy, Blueball, Tullamore, Co. Offaly. This fund has been established to fulfil the strong legacy left by Ashling, even in her short life. Donations and proceeds from fundraisers will be utilised to achieve the objectives of the memorial fund. These objectives have been compiled by the Murphy family along with committee members and are deemed close to Ashling’s heart and represent the many interests she had in her 23 years.


Ashling Murphy was a beautiful, caring, loving, compassionate and warm-hearted person. An amazing daughter to Ray and Kathleen, a wonderful sister to Amy and Cathal, a loving partner to Ryan, and a kind, caring young woman to her extended family, pupils, colleagues and wide circle of friends. Ashling was breath-takingly talented- an exceptional musician, talented sportsperson and an inspirational teacher to the many young people she encountered within her 23 years. She was determined to succeed at whatever she turned her hand to, whether that be music or sports, and had an admirable personality, positive attitude and infectious smile that would brighten up any room she entered.


Ashling touched the hearts and minds of many people during her very short life and even after her sudden and tragic departure from us on the 12th of January, 2022. The Ashling Murphy Memorial Fund was established in November 2022 and will always remember Ashling for who she was by fulfilling her legacy through the memorial fund objectives outlined below.
