It comes as prayers for Ashling have been said across the country this morning.
Father Joe Gallagher of Church of the Assumption in Tullamore told churchgoers: “Life can be cruel, and we don’t know why.”
He also prayed for the tragic teacher who taught at Durrow National School and for her “heartbroken family”.
Father Gallagher added: “We can’t even begin to understand their pain and we want to reach out to them and carry them through this terrible time.”
It happened when Gardai was probing whether killer Ashling Murphy was stalking potential victims along the canal in Tullamore 24 hours before she was brutally murdered.
The Irish Sun on Sunday can reveal detectives have received reports of a man on a bicycle being seen acting suspiciously in the area.
This comes after a woman in her 40s claimed she was approached by a cyclist just two hours earlier. Ashling was murdered at the canal bank in Cappincur, Tullamore, Co Offaly, last Wednesday afternoon.
A source said: ‘It’s very concerning that Ashling’s killer may have been in the same area trying to identify other innocent women.
“This is a random and barbaric attack on a young woman who has her whole life ahead of her.”
A Garda spokesperson told us: “We have received a lot of information from the public since the fatal attack of Ashling Murphy at 4pm on Wednesday, January 12.
“All of that information needs to be checked and reconciled to see if it is relevant to the ongoing investigation.
“We still encourage people to provide information and we will decide how relevant it is.
“We would like to thank members of the public for providing some information.”
Last night, the suspect was still continuing treatment at a hospital in Dublin.
