Gardaí have identified another person of interest as part of the investigation into the murder of Ashling Murphy.

Gardaí are waiting to interview a man who is currently in hospital.

They say they are making significant progress in their investigation and expect developments in the next few days.

RTÉ News has also learned that another woman reported she had been followed along the Canal Bank at Cappincur two hours before Ms Murphy was murdered.



Listening to the radio all day yesterday while WFH…it was a veritable non-stop, “all men are evil, violent bastards” tirade. (I was almost going to turn myself in at the local Garda station for being complicit in this awful killing.)


(post withdrawn by author, will be automatically deleted in 24 hours unless flagged)


The sad fact is that if this was a 23 year old male jogger, it would have only got a brief two minute mention once in the news yesterday and then disappeared off the radar, and no one would have cared!


Still no description of the suspect released…


The fact that he appears to be in hospital narrows it down a lot, so the next question has to be how did he end up in hospital?
Was he got hold of by local vigilantes before the Gardaí, or what???


Or maybe not…


Or what would be my guess

He’s looking at a life sentence, he probably doesn’t know how short that can be in Ireland


They took down the competition and assumed the monopoly without blinking, so we’ve ended up in a place that seems a lot like the 1950’s Ireland with internet, i.e. 24/7 mass in your pocket/hand.


We’re expected to believe Ross O’Carroll-Kelly works at a school. Sure. What year was that story I wonder. It probably points to the childishness and isolation of schoolteachers. I doubt lidl staff would act that way. The willingness to smear men on the basis of an anecdote is tiresome. Though it is interesting that as a matter of public policy schools, like prisons seem to be exempt from police oversight in their day-to-day running.

But on a broader point, the feminist left has deconstructed all sense of sexual propriety in society, chased away religion, cheered on the filling of the country with 3rd world peasants - who due to porn think white girls are constantly ‘up for it’ but who don’t give them the time of day in reality… and now wonders where it all went wrong.

Perpetrators usually start with jeering, street harassment, exposure, groping. Yet we rarely intervene when men perpetrate entry-level violence. Recently a teacher recounted to me a story of a male pupil who exposed himself to girls and women in school. When the teacher went to report it, a male colleague laughingly labelled him “a legend”. It is time to stop in their tracks those who commit entry-level violence. Too often this behaviour is ignored or even condoned. More rarely is it prosecuted or punished.


The photo of the guy on the bike (which has now been published by mainstream media) clearly shows this is not a “local man”…


Which media outlets, can’t see?


The busiest people in Ireland right now are the Narrative Manufacturers.

Apparently “a bike” killed Ashling Murphy. A distinctive one. But it’s rider must have no distinguishing features.

And “all men” must share in the blame. Rather than, say, “all migration advocates”. We are to assume it was being around Irish males which caused this.


You think I’m joking ?
For posterity



OK this story of a man’s body found in Buncrana, let’s see how much publicity it gets.


We, as a society, need to face up to this. There is an epidemic of violence against women. It’s been going on for millennia, quite frankly,” Leo Varadkar, the deputy prime minister, said on Friday.


Sunday Times gives details of new Suspect in hospital,

Just a thought but the name of virus variants were changed to prevent racist kick backs.
