She was pregnant with her fifth child at the time of her tragic death.

Liam Taylor, 37, who is of no fixed address, is understood to be her partner and was charged with the killing yesterday.

He will appear in custody at Barkingside Magistrates’ Court today.

A fundraiser has been set up in an attempt to cover the costs of a funeral at home in Ireland for “beautiful” Ailish.

Teresa Cannon, who set up the GoFundMe for Ailish’s family urged those who could, to donate towards the cause.

Paying tribute to Ailish, she described her as an “amazing young woman of 28 with four young children and a little girl on the way.”

She said: “I would like to try and raise as much money as we can to help the family with the Funeral costs and getting Ailish back home to Ireland to put her at rest and be back with her family.

“I know times are hard at the moment but you cannot imagine how hard this is for her family and children so please, please, no matter how much or how little every penny will help.”

The campaign has already racked up £5,395 through 74 donations out of the £5,000 goal.

One contributor paid tribute to tragic Ailish: “Sending lots of love and light to the family. Rest in peace Ailish.”

Another simply added: “So sorry this happened to you Ailish.”

Police were called to the North-East London address at around 10:20pm on Thursday where they found the body of Ailish and confirmed she was dead.

A Metropolitan Police spokesperson said: “Despite the best efforts of emergency services, the woman was pronounced dead at the scene. Her family has been informed.

“If you can help the police investigation call 101 or Tweet at MetCC and give reference 6902/15Dec.

“Alternatively, contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
