Ana Kriégel - Crime scene location.

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.

When Ana arrived at the property, Boy A threw her to the ground and sexually assaulted her.

He then proceeded to beat her to death.

Following the murder, her body lay in this house until it was discovered three days later.

At 5PM 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.

She was last seen in St Catherine's Park, which is about a 15-minute walk away from Glenwood House. In total, it would have taken Ana and Boy B about 20-25 minutes to reach the house.

Her mother becomes suspicious.

When Geraldine found out that a boy had called to the door looking for her daughter, she immediately became worried. Geraldine knew that Ana did not have any friends. Furthermore, nobody had ever called for her before.

Upon realizing that something was off, Geraldine repeatedly phoned her daughter and sent text messages to her. However, she received no response.

The family then started to search for Ana. Unfortunately, after a couple of hours, there was still no trace of their missing daughter.

As a result, they 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 Ana in St. Catherine's Park.

As the two boys were retracing their steps and showing the gardai where they had last seen Ana, they both shared "a look" with one another.

This "look", coupled with the fact that they had conflicting stories, made the gardai suspicious of the two boys.

A couple of days later, on May 17th, 2018, a garda search team discovered Ana's body at Glenwood House in Lucan.

Subsequently, the Irish police charged Boy A and Boy B with murder.

Their trial started in April of 2019 and lasted eight weeks. On June 18th, 2019, the jury found both 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.

Demolition.

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

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

Trivia about Glenwood House and other information.

  • The O'Callaghan family purchased Glenwood House in 2003 for €10.5 million.
  • 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.
  • In 2020, it was partially renovated and bricked-up to prevent people from entering it.
  • The house has been plagued by anti-social activity for years. According to residents, the local fire brigade were regularly putting out fires at the property before Ana's murder.
  • In 2016, the O'Callaghan family were granted permission to convert the farmhouse into a 62-bed nursing home.
