A young Irish woman who recently moved to Singapore has been found dead in bed by a friend.

Orla Daly, who was originally from Clontarf in Dublin, moved to the Queenstown area of Singapore in January to work in sales. The circumstances surrounding her death are unclear at present.

The Department of Foreign Affairs confirmed it is providing consular assistance to Ms Daly’s family, who were in contact with the department yesterday. Some members of Ms Daly’s family are set to travel to Singapore.

Speaking of her travels on Twitter, Ms Daly told friends she loved living and working abroad. She told one friend that she was “absolutely loving it”, “couldn’t be happier” and that “everything has fallen into place”.

Tributes to Ms Daly have appeared online, with one friend saying she was “a lovely girl who never spoke a bad word about anyone”.

Ms Daly’s family have been in touch with their local priest Fr Larry White, who appealed for privacy at this time.
