Glenwood House: The location where Ana Kriégel was murdered
Crime Scene Location in Lucan, Dublin, Ireland
This is the abandoned house where Ana Kriégel was murdered.
It is called Glenwood House, and it is situated on L3004 Clonee Road (Laraghcon) in Lucan, Dublin.
On May 14th, 2018, two 13-year-old boys lured Kriégel to this derelict farmhouse.
When she arrived, one of the boys sexually assaulted her and beat her to death.
Under Irish law, the two boys cannot be named because they were minors at the time of the murder. As a result, they are referred to as Boy A and Boy B.
Ana Kriégel's murder
At around 5 p.m. on May 14th, 2018, Boy B visited Kriégel's house in Leixlip and told her that Boy A wanted to speak to her.
When she agreed to meet him, Boy B led her through St. Catherine's Park and brought her to this disused property on the outskirts of Lucan.
Upon their arrival, Boy A threw Kriégel to the ground, sexually assaulted her, and then beat her to death.
Kriégel's mother becomes suspicious
On the evening of the murder, Kriégel's mother, Geraldine, arrived home and asked her husband where their daughter had gone.
After being told 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 wasn't right, she repeatedly called her daughter and sent her multiple text messages. However, she received no response.
The family spent hours searching their local neighborhood and a nearby park before they finally decided to contact the police and file a missing person report.
Boy A and Boy B are charged with murder
Over the next few 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 her last known whereabouts. However, while they were doing so, one of the officers noticed them sharing a "strange look" with one another.
This "look," coupled with the fact that their stories conflicted, led the police to suspect that they were lying.
On May 17th, 2018, a search team discovered Kriégel's body at this abandoned house in Lucan. Subsequently, the two boys were charged with her murder.
Their trial started in April 2019 and lasted eight weeks. On June 18th, 2019, the jury found them both guilty.
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 2021, Fingal County Council granted the owners permission to convert the building into a nursing home with 119 bedrooms.
Priory CCL Limited purchased the property for €4 million in late 2021. In August 2023, a spokesperson for the company confirmed that they were proceeding with plans to build a nursing home facility.

People often leave flowers and other memorial items at the entrance.
The house was a hot spot for anti-social activity in the years prior to Kriégel's murder. Local residents said that the fire brigade was regularly putting out fires at the property.
Months before her death, 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.
Members of the Garda Technical Bureau enter the crime scene.
St. Catherine's Park
Boy B led Ana through St. Catherine's Park while they were en route to the house.
This image of Glenwood House was captured in April 2017.
The house was built in the early 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. One year later, they reapplied with a plan for a larger facility with a two-story extension. However, Fingal County Council rejected this new proposal.
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 was just 14 years old when she was murdered.
Her parents adopted her from Russia in 2006.
Note that under Irish law, we cannot name or 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 2020, two teenage inmates reportedly assaulted Boy A while he was watching television.
In 2022, they were both moved to the same adult prison. Prison sources have told tabloid newspapers that the pair are not on friendly terms.
Although Boy B launched an appeal against his conviction, he decided to withdraw it in June 2023.
