Vigils to be held across the country in memory of Aidan Moffitt and Michael Snee

Vigils will be held across the country over the next few days in memory of Aidan Moffitt and Michael Snee.

Murder investigations are currently underway in Sligo following the killings of both men this week, and 22-year-old Yousef Palani has already been charged with their murder.

Aidan Moffitt, 41, was found dead at his home in Sligo town on Monday, April 11.

Less than 24 hours later, the body of 58-year-old Michael Snee was discovered at his home on Connaughton Road.

Gardaí are investigating if there was a hate-related motive to their murders, and if both men met their killer online.

Aidan and Michael’s tragic deaths have sent shockwaves across the country and the LGBTQ+ community.
