The family of Ana Kriegel has asked mourners at her funeral today to wear sparkle and colour because that's what she would have loved.
The body of the 14 year old was found at a derelict farmhouse in Lucan earlier this month.
She had been missing from her home in Leixlip for three days and her remains were located after a massive search operation.
Last week a 13 year old boy was charged with her murder.
A civil service celebrating Ana’s life will be held in Newlands Cross Crematorium at 2.30pm today.
The family has asked that donations in place of flowers be made to the Russian Irish Adoption Group.
