Glenwood House: The location where Ana Kriégel was murdered.
Crime Scene Location in Lucan, Dublin, Ireland.
This is the abandoned house where 14-year-old Ana Kriégel was murdered.
On May 14th, 2018, Ana was lured to this derelict farmhouse by two 13-year-old boys.
The two boys cannot be named under Irish law because they are minors. As a result, the media referred to them as Boy A and Boy B.
Ana Kriégel's murder.
At around 5 p.m. on the evening of the attack, Boy B called to Ana's house in Leixlip and told her that Boy A wanted to speak to her.
After agreeing to see him, Ana followed Boy B through St. Catherine's Park until they reached Glenwood House.
When Ana went inside the property, Boy A threw her to the ground, sexually assaulted her, and then beat her to death. Following the murder, her body lay in the house until it was discovered three days later.
Her mother becomes suspicious.
When Ana's mother, Geraldine Kriégel, learned that a boy had called to the house looking for her daughter, she immediately became worried. She knew that Ana did not have any friends. Furthermore, nobody had ever called for her before.
Realizing that something was off, Geraldine repeatedly phoned her daughter and sent multiple text messages to her. However, she received no response.
After spending hours searching for Ana in the neighborhood and nearby park, the family eventually decided to go to the local garda station.
The search for Ana begins.
Over the next couple of days, gardai carried out a number of searches in the area. They also interviewed Boy A and Boy B. However, the two boys remained adamant that they had last seen Kriégel in St. Catherine's Park.
While the two boys were retracing their steps and showing the gardai where they had last seen Ana, they both shared a strange "look" with one another.
This "look," coupled with the fact that they had conflicting stories, immediately raised suspicions that they were lying.
A couple of days later, on May 17th, 2018, a search team discovered the young girl'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 the two boys guilty of the murder of Ana Kriégel.
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.
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 of 2017.
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 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.
