Ana Kriégel - Crime scene location

This is the abandoned house where Ana Kriégel was murdered.

On May 14th, 2018, Kriégel was lured to this derelict farmhouse by two 13-year-old boys, one of whom sexually assaulted her and beat her to death.

Under Irish law, the two boys cannot be named because they are minors. As a result, they are commonly referred to as Boy A and Boy B.

Ana Kriégel's murder

At around 5 p.m. on the evening of the attack, Boy B visited Kriégel's house in Leixlip and told her that Boy A wanted to speak to her.

When the 14-year-old agreed to meet him, Boy B led her through St. Catherine's Park and brought her to a disused property called Glenwood House.

Upon their arrival, Boy A threw Kriégel to the ground, sexually assaulted her, and then beat her to death. Following the murder, her body lay in the house for three days until it was eventually discovered by the police.

Kriégel's mother becomes suspicious

Later that evening, Kriégel's mother, Geraldine, arrived home and asked her husband where their daughter had gone.

After learning that she had left with a boy, she immediately became worried.

Kriégel was a quiet teenager who struggled to make friends. Furthermore, nobody had ever called for her before, let alone a boy.

Realizing that something didn't seem right, she repeatedly called her daughter and sent her multiple text messages. However, she received no response.

Although the family spent hours searching the local neighborhood and a nearby park, they were unable to find any trace of her. Consequently, they decided to file a missing person report.

Boy A and Boy B are charged with murder

Over the next couple of days, the Irish police carried out a number of searches in the area. They also interviewed Boy A and Boy B, who claimed that they had last seen Kriégel in St. Catherine's Park.

The boys agreed to retrace their steps and show the police the exact spot where they had seen her. However, while they were doing so, one of the officers noticed them sharing a strange look.

This "look," coupled with the fact that they had conflicting details in their stories, led the police to suspect that they were lying.

A couple of days later, on May 17th, 2018, a search team discovered Kriégel's body at this house in Lucan. Subsequently, the two boys were charged with her murder.

Their trial started in April of 2019 and lasted eight weeks. On June 18th, 2019, the jury found them both guilty of Kriégel's murder.

Boy A received a life sentence with a review after 12 years. Boy B, on the other hand, received a 15-year prison sentence with a review after 8 years.


Following the killing, politicians and members of the public called for the demolition of Glenwood House. However, this was not possible as the house is a protected structure.

In June of 2021, Fingal County Council granted the owners permission to convert the building into a nursing home facility with 119 bedrooms.

As you can see, locals still leave flowers and other memorial items at the entrance.

The house had been plagued by anti-social activity for years before Kriégel's murder. According to local residents, the fire brigade was regularly putting out fires at the property.

Months before, a local historical society contacted Fingal County Council to express their concerns about anti-social behavior at the Glenwood House. Although the council raised these concerns with the owners, no changes were made.

The house was built at the beginning of the 1800s. It is a protected structure because it is considered to be of special interest from an architectural point of view.

It was designed by English architect James Gandon, whose other works include the Four Courts and the Custom House in Dublin.

The O'Callaghan family purchased it in 2003 for €10.5 million.

In 2016, the O'Callaghan family was granted permission to convert the farmhouse into a 62-bed nursing home. A year later, they reapplied with a plan for a larger facility with a two-story extension. However, this was refused by Fingal County Council. In 2021, the council granted them permission to create a 119-bed facility.



Following the murder, the entrance was blocked off and the windows of the house were bricked up.

Ana Kriegel

Ana Kriegel

Ana Kriegel was just 14 years old when she was brutally murdered.

Her parents adopted her from Russia in 2006.

Note that under Irish law, we cannot publish photographs of Boy A or Boy B.

The pair served the first part of their sentences at the Oberstown Detention Centre in County Dublin. In May of 2020, Boy A was reportedly beaten up by two teenage inmates while he was watching television.

In 2022, they were both moved to the same adult prison. According to sources, they are not on friendly terms.
