Violence against women and girls is a social scourge, the brother of murder victim Natalie McNally said at her memorial service.
Over 1,000 people attended a memorial service at Lagan Park in Co Armour, also calling for an end to all violence against women.
McNally, who was 32 and 15 weeks pregnant, was stabbed to death at her home in Silverwood Green, Co Armagh on December 18.
Despite numerous police complaints and several arrests, no one has yet been charged in her death.
Police have so far conducted hundreds of door-to-door searches and seized over 4,000 hours of CCTV footage.
The rally was organized by the National Council for Women (NWC) and was attended by Natalie’s parents, Noel and Bernie, and her brothers, Brendan, Neil, and Declan.
Many politicians were present, including Sinn Fein’s Stormont leader Michelle O’Neill.
Many in attendance held placards reading “Justice for Natalie” and “She just stays home”.
Brendan McNally said at the rally that his sister is an inspiration to other women.
he said: She had type 1 diabetes since she was 3 years old.
“But it’s a testament to her character that she never held back what she wanted to achieve in life.
“She was delighted to be a mother for the first time. Natalie is an ideal inspiration for young people with diabetes in Northern Ireland.”
“Violence against women and girls is one of the great scourges of our society.
“This is not the basis for a shared future.
“It’s time to recognize that we cannot rest until the constant attacks on women are completely over.”
Another brother, Declan McNally, presented a video montage showing excerpts from Ms. Necknally’s life.
“This video is a montage of Natalie’s memories, put together by her loving partner.
“Please keep Natalie’s partner in your thoughts and prayers.
“This is how we want Natalie to be remembered: a beautiful, fun-loving person.”
McNally’s parents told PA they hoped the rally would prick the conscience of anyone with information about their daughter’s murder.
Bernie McNally said:
“She had the best life and that’s what we want to remember in all this grief and grief.”
Noel McNally said:
“They’re throwing everything they have. I’m sure they’ll get this guy.”
Rachel Coyle, director of campaigns and mobilization for the National Council on Women, said the rally was an opportunity for society to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the McNally family.
“Moreover, Natalie is the 16th woman killed in similar circumstances last year.
“That’s why we are here to continue our campaign to end violence against women.
“I live here in Ragan. Women are afraid that this person is not caught. This is the reality of women.”
The rally occurred as police renewed their complaint to find Ms. McNally’s killer.
Senior Criminal Investigator Neil McGuinness said: “The investigation into the gruesome murder of Natalie, who was 15 weeks pregnant, continues.
“We are committed to finding answers for Natalie’s grieving family.
“It is shocking that a future mother was brutally murdered in her home, which should have been a safe place.
“We salute Natalie’s family for their continued fortitude and thank all those who are supporting our investigation.
“The death of Natalie and her unborn child caused them unimaginable heartache.
“Not only are they trying to come to terms with the deaths of their only daughter and sister, they are also grieving the loss of Natalie’s baby boy, whom they named Dean.
“The man who killed Natalie robbed them all of the opportunity to meet Dean and see him grow into a loving family member.
“I would also like to thank the community in and around Lurgan for their support and all the information that people have brought to the police.
