Paramedics found her lying at the back of her house and transported her to Mater Hospital, where she sadly died as doctors tried in vain to save her.
Ms. Boyd’s devastated relatives have today poured out tributes in her memory, The Sun reports. Describing her as his ‘world’, Ms. Boyd’s partner Darren Noonan said he was ‘heartbroken’ and added ‘I will love you forever.
No arrests have been made. A gun was found and has been sent for ballistic testing. The police stated, “’We’ve had a number of incidents in the Finglas community over the last few months, so we’d be calling for extra Garda resources to deal with the problem.”
