« BackDrogheda Mayor: Town is behind Meagher family

JILLThe Mayor of Drogheda says society needs to change so that no more young women suffer the same fate as Jill Meagher.

Ms Meagher was raped and murdered in Melbourne, Australia, last September.

The accused, Adrian Ernest Bayley, has pleaded guilty and is due to be sentenced on June 11th.

The Meagher family say they’re relieved they won’t have to go through the trial process – and have thanked the people of Australia and Ireland for their support.

Mayor of Drogheda, Paul Bell says he hopes the solidarity shown for Jill is the start of a change in society’s attitudes towards violence against women.
