The young Lurgan woman who was found dead at a house in the town on Monday has been remembered as “having a smile for everyone”.

Numerous tributes have been paid to Natalie McNally.

A man in his 30s who was arrested has been released on police bail and the PSNI said the investigation is at an early stage.

Natalie worked as part of the marketing team at Translink.

In a statement, the company said: “We have been shocked and saddened today by the news of the loss of our colleague and friend Natalie.

“She was a valued member of the Translink marketing team and we would like to extend our heartfelt sympathies to her family and friends at this very sad time.”

The Model Primary School in Lurgan, where Natalie was a pupil and where her mother also taught, said: “As a school community we are saddened to hear of the tragic passing of former pupil, Natalie McNally.

“A number of current staff taught Natalie and remember her fondly as a kind, caring and capable person, with a smile for everyone.

“Her mother is also formerly a member of staff.

“We wish to express our sincere condolences to Bernie and all of Natalie’s family and friends. May she Rest In Peace.”

SDLP councillor Ciaran Toman said: “Natalie was in my form class in school and I remember her to be the most pleasant young woman who clearly had a bright future ahead of her.

“This is obviously a very sad situation for the family of the deceased and my thoughts are with them at this time.”

Meanwhile, Women’s Aid NI also passed on their “sincerest condolences” to her family and friends “at this most difficult time”.

“Please know you are all in our thoughts. It’s incredibly difficult to comprehend another woman losing her life here in NI to violence,” they said.
