Model Alli MacDonnell shared post about online bullying before her death

Alli MacDonnell posted about being targeted by bullies online yesterday before her death.

The Dublin-born model took to Facebook, revealing that she had received some upsetting messages on social media.

"Why is it ok for a man to call a girl a fat ugly c***??????," she wrote, according to The Sun.

"Seriously new level of pushing someone to the edge."

The mum-of-four from Rathfarnham was later found dead. She was 36.

Gardaí have said that they are not looking for anyone else in relation to her death.

Alli was a model with Andrea Roche's agency and in recent years became an ambassador for Irish Autism Action.

She is survived by her children, Alex, Sara, Harry and Siena.

The mum-of-four began campaigning and raising awareness of autism after her son Harry was diagnosed with the condition in 2016.

Her close friend John Compton, who owns a Dublin modelling agency, said that he was "devastated" at the loss of Alli.

"She had so much to live for," he told the Irish Mirror.

"She was an amazing mum and a fantastic campaigner for autism. She did such good work."

Samantha Judge, CEO of Irish Autism Action, remembered her as "a beautiful woman, inside and out."

"She was a very strong voice for autism as a mother, and she was so supportive of her children and of the charity.

"She will be a great loss to us."
