FOLLOWING a request from the family of Aoife Phelan, a Facebook tribute page called ‘RIP Aoife Phelan’ has been removed.

The page was set up yesterday following the discovery of 30-year-old Aoife’s body following a planned search at the rear of a property on the Timahoe Road, Portlaoise.

Aoife’s sister Leighanne Roche asked, “Whoever started this page please take it down in respect of my sister Aoife. Thanks.”
Overnight the page attracted more than 4,500 likes, prompting Gardaí to urge members of the public to be cautious when posting comments on Facebook and on all forms of social media in relation to the murder investigation.
