Share this article


A 13 year old boy charged with the murder of Kildare schoolgirl Ana Kriegel has applied for bail in the High Court. The accused cannot be identified because of his age. 

The body of 14 year old Ana Kriegel was found in a derelict farmhouse in Lucan on the 17th of May.

The schoolgirl had been reported missing three days before that. A 13 year old schoolboy was charged with her murder on the 25th of May and has faced three court appearances before the Children’s Court.

That court remanded him in custody to the Oberstown Children’s Detention Campus. This morning he faced his fourth court appearance – this time at the High Court where he applied for bail.

He was accompanied by his parents and his grandfather and barrister Niall Nolan and a solicitor.

The boy was allowed seat with his family but did not address the court.  Inspector Garda, Mark O’Neill, who is leading the investigation objected to bail.

Judge Robert Eager reserved judgement and will hand down his decision on whether the boy will get bail or not on Friday afternoon.

He imposed strict reporting restrictions on the proceedings.
