The boys, who cannot be named publicly, were 13-years-old when they killed 14-year-old Ana Kriégel last year. The young girl was found dead in a derelict farmhouse in Lucan in May 2018.
God love poor Ana Kriégel's family. Today is a day to remember a young person murdered so senselessly, a young life blighted by bullying and cruelty, a young girl who filled the lives of those she loved with kindness and joy.
