'My beautiful, funny, intelligent baby girl' - mum's tribute to tragic Elisha

GrĂ¡inne Gault has thanked the search teams that recovered her child's body from the River Suir after eight days of extensive searches across south Tipperary and beyond.

"Our baby girl has been recovered," she wrote online. "Thank you all for your efforts in bringing her home to us, so we can now lay her to rest."

As thousands of tributes poured in online, Ms Gault then posted a smiling picture of her daughter.

"My beautiful, funny, intelligent baby girl Elisha Gault," she wrote.

Elisha was last seen shortly after 10pm on St Patrick's Day on Dillon Bridge in her hometown of Carrick-on-Suir.

Flowers were laid at the site yesterday morning, with many people stopping briefly to bless themselves or pay their respects as they passed by.

Hundreds of search volunteers supported the massive operation to find the schoolgirl, before her body was found on Sunday evening.

Parish priest Fr Paul Waldron told the Irish Independent that "a blanket of anxiety" had covered the community. "On behalf of the faith community of Carrick-on-Suir and surrounding areas, we extend our heartfelt sympathies to the Gault family at this most tragic of times," he said. "There is in this community an extraordinary sense of care and mutual support, which always manifests itself at times of difficulty and tragedy, never more so than in these recent days."

The principal of Comeragh College, where Elisha was a pupil, said she "will be missed by all who knew her". "This is a terrible tragedy for her family, our school and our community," said Kevin Langton. "We are deeply saddened by this news."

GEM is to headline the Los Angeles Power Women Summit in December, bringing this new style of medical-music to the masses. She has been able to make use of her time in isolation: perfecting her EP, creating a YouTube channel and working on a plethora of collaborations with other global artists. The new single, If I’m Honest, is arguably the first of its kind. It has been specifically produced in the key of B. The musical note B is associated with the crown chakra, the 7th chakras in the Buddhist tantric system. Buddhists believe that by listening to music in this key, corresponding to the crown chakra, it can heal and awaken the listener, helping to release stored negative energy and energetic blockages in the body.

Sam Hankins was born to shine! Jazz Musician with a supreme Sound!

We were able to talk to a very talented musician by the name Sam Hankins.  His jazz music is full of soul, with inspiration that can light the path for fans and fellow musicians. Read the details about his journey below!   Interview Questions So when did you become a musician, and would you say it was the ideal path to take? Because I was born into a musical family, becoming a musician was not something I even thought about. It is in my blood. I knew I wanted to make music my career at the early age of 5 years old. I know that being a professional trumpeter and school band director is my calling.   Who are the jazz influences that inspired you? You know, I started off with singing & playing the guitar, but then I saw Louis Armstrong playing the trumpet & that decided it for me. When I spoke to my mom, she said that my uncle had an old trumpet that he used to play and once I had cleaned it out, my fate was sealed. Some of the other jazz influencers were Freddie Hubbard, Miles Da

Michael Coleman Is back with another Anthem!

  WE HAD A CHANCE TO CATCH UP WITH MICHAEL COLEMAN, READ WHAT HE HAD TO SAY ABOUT HIS MUSICAL JOURNEY!   Michael Coleman, where are you from and what's it like in your hometown and how did you get the nickname "The Metropolitan Cowboy"?   I was actually born and raised in San Diego, California.  San Diego is just an awesome town although like everywhere else in California, it costs a fortune to live there.  My nickname, “The Metropolitan Cowboy” actually comes from a television project I was doing a few year’s back. I wrote and produced an adult-oriented sketch comedy show and since I was always dressed with a cowboy hat on and looked metrosexual we decided that should be the name of the show and my brand and I have been called that ever since.   How long have you been songwriting and where do you find the inspiration?   I’ve been writing since I was a kid, however I didn’t decide to take it seriously until I had a milestone birthday , I won’t tell you which one and it wa
