The page was set up by Amy’s cousins Tracey and Laura Byrne, and Leanne and Lyndsey Gill, and since it was started on Friday has received more than 1200 donations to help return the 23-year-old’s body home to Ireland.

Irish media reports described the young woman as a “genuine and gentle soul” and strangers have posted their support for the family on the page.
