Following the revelation, Co. Longford residents were shocked and depressed, according to Fianna Fail Councillor Seamus Butler.

“When something like this happens overseas, it’s so much more difficult,” he remarked, expressing his sympathy for her family from here in Longford. Hopefully, the family will be able to take advantage of the available services.

In recent months, Ms. McNally is the second Irishwoman to die in New York. On October 21, 2023, Co Louth resident Denise Morgan, 39, was shot and killed at her Queens home.

The 33-year-old Joed Taveras shot Ms. Morgan to death before pulling the trigger on himself. Before Taveras killed her, Ms. Morgan intended to break up with him and move out, according to her sisters, who spoke to IrishStar.com.

The woman with a single child was told that her life had been “stolen from her” and that she would never see justice served.
