One of the teenage boys convicted of the murder of schoolgirl, Ana Kriégel, has lodged an appeal against his conviction.

The 15-year-old, referred to in court as Boy B, was found guilty of her murder by a jury earlier this year and was sentenced to 15 years in detention, to be reviewed after eight years.

The boys were just 13-years-old when they murdered the 14-year-old schoolgirl in May 2018.

The jury found that Boy B lured Ana from her home, knowing that his friend would be waiting to attack her in a derelict house in St Catherine's Park in Lucan.

The boy gave many different versions of what happened to gardaí, but eventually admitted seeing the other boy, known as Boy A, attacking Ana. He continues to deny any part in the murder and does not accept the verdict of the jury.

Boy A was found guilty of murder and of aggravated sexual assault. No appeal has been lodged on his behalf.
