Two different Go Fund Me pages have been set up to raise fundsto help repatriate the mother and daughter who died tragically yesterday in Newry and to help her family make the journey here.

Giselle Marimon Herrera, a 37 year old Columbian mother and her beautiful 15 year old daughter and Allison died in the incident which is the subject of an ongoing investigation by the PSNI. A man also died. £700 has already been raised between the two pages.

A page set up by Ógra Shinn Féin, Newry explains

"Giselle Marimón Herrera and her 15 year old daughter Alison were murdered in Newry in an attack that has shocked our whole community.

"Now, their family want desperately to fly to Ireland in order to say their final goodbyes to their daughter and granddaughter and to meet up with their other daughter who is believed to live locally.

"Fabián Marimon y Elizabeth Herrera live in Colombia and are willing to sell anything they have in order to finance that terrible journey. They are going through hell and their hands are tied as they cannot financially get themselves to Newry where they need to be.

"We we are raising funds to show the family of these two ladies that the people of Newry are there for them in their time of need and great sadness and that we will try our best as a community to facilitate their safe arrival to our town to mourn their beloved family members."
