Fundraiser launched to help with burial of murdered dad-of-7 Garreth Kelly

A FUNDRAISER has been launched to help the partner and family of murdered Garreth Kelly, who was stabbed to death in a Dublin estate earlier this week.

A GoFundMe set up by a Mr James Kelly describes the father of 7 as a hardworking man who held down two jobs to support his family and give them a decent life, and states that he was murdered while on his way to work 'for parking in the wrong spot'.

Garreth is not covered by insurance, the statement under the fundraiser says, and the family he left behind do not have any savings and cannot afford to bury him, according to The Irish Mirror.

Set up just two days ago, people from the local community and beyond have come together to raise money for Garreth's heartbroken family and have raised almost €10,000-- double the €5,000 target.

Messages of support and condolences have flooded the message board underneath the fundraiser, with many praising Garreth as a 'lovely guy' and saying his family 'deserve the best'.

Mr Kelly was stabbed to death in Kingswood, Dublin on Tuesday morning, in what Gardaí believe was a row over a parking spot.

A 38-year-old mother-of-three, Christina Anderson, was arrested and charged with his murder.
