A third-level camogie competition will honour the memory of Offaly school teacher Ashling Murphy.

The Camogie Association confirmed today that the previously unnamed Division 5 Cup will be named the 'Ashling Murphy Cup'.

The 23-year-old played camogie for her local club Kilcormac Killoughey and also represented Mary Immaculate College where she studied.

"Ashling’s accomplishments, her generosity of spirit and her love of Irish culture touched so many, the naming of the CCAO cup in her honour is a fitting tribute," said President of the Camogie Association Hilda Breslin.

Ashling Murphy was killed in Tullamore in Co Offaly on 12 January last year.

A man has been charged in relation to her death and the matter is before the courts.
