Hundreds of mourners have gathered in west Dublin for the funeral service of murdered schoolgirl Anastasia Kriegel.
A number of young girls dressed in black with red and white headbands formed a guard of honour as her coffin was brought into the Newlands Cross crematorium this afternoon for the civil service.
Her parents asked mourners to wear "sparkle and colour" to the service to reflect Ana’s love for these things.
The funeral takes place two weeks after the 14-year-old’s body was found in a derelict farmhouse near Lucan three days after she was reported missing by her parents.
A 13-year-old boy was charged with her murder last week.
He was detained in Oberstown Detention Centre and is due to appear again before the Children's Court tomorrow.
