The devastated dad of a young woman who was brutally stabbed to death said he has been “broken” by her horrific killing.

Care worker Jennie Poole, 24, was attacked at her apartment in Melville Drive, Finglas, North Dublin, at around 2pm on Saturday.

In a poignant tribute, her father Joe wrote: “RIP baby Jen, love you. I’m broken, love Dad.”

A man in his 20s, who is known to the victim, was still being quizzed by gardai last night.

Yesterday, a steady stream of loved ones and colleagues arrived at Ms Poole’s home to lay flowers.

COLLEAGUES of the healthcare worker brutally stabbed to death have paid tribute to a “great friend and mother”.

Mum-of-two Jennie Poole was attacked at her apartment in Melville Drive, Finglas, North Dublin, at around 2pm on Saturday.

The 24-year-old was rushed by ambulance to Connolly Hospital in Blanchardstown but pronounced dead a short time later.

A steady stream of tearful mourners left flowers and messages outside her home yesterday.

Jennie’s workmate Camilla told reporters: “She was a lovely girl, she was a great mother and a hard worker.

“We all loved her, we were a team. The way she spoke to people and took care of them, she was a lovely person.

“We are shocked, she was a great mother, a really really nice person.

“The care that she was providing for the residents, everybody loved her.”

A note left at the scene read: “Jennie you will forever be in our hearts, rest easy up there.”

Another described her as “the brightest star in the sky”.

A group of her friends, most too upset to speak to reporters, left helium balloons with their pictures on them.

Jennie’s dad Joe Poole posted a picture of his daughter on Facebook alongside a heartbreaking tribute.

He wrote: “RIP baby Jen, love you. I’m broken, love Dad.”
