Nicola Furlong is Remembered

Nicola FurlongThis afternoon a great number of people took part in "The Pink Walk", a fundraising 5km walk for murdered Wexford woman Nicola Furlong (21)  who was killed in Japan in May. After the walk there was a barbecue on Charlotte Street with live music from local musician Aaron Berry, who penned the song This Is Not Goodbye from words Nicola’s sister Andrea spoke in a moving tribute at her funeral in Curracloe in June. Other local musical acts also performed. All proceeds go into an account which will pay the cost of travel and accommodation for Ms Furlong’s father Andrew, mother Angie, and sister Andrea while they attend the trial for her murder in Japan. Last week a panel of judges in Tokyo ruled that American suspect Richard Hinds (19) is to be tried as an adult for Ms Furlong’s murder.
