Latest: Family and friends are gathering this afternoon for the funeral of Kildare schoolgirl Ana Kreigel.

This afternoon her parents, brother, relatives and friends are gathering to celebrate her life at a civil funeral service in Newlands Cross Crematorium in Dublin.

Around 200 school students are also attending.

Ana’s family say she loved sparkle and colour and have asked mourners to reflect this dress code.

The family has also asked for any donations to be given to the Russian Irish Adoption group.

It has been two weeks since Ana's body was discovered in a derelict farmhouse in Lucan, Co Dublin.

A 13-year-old boy has been charged with Ana’s murder.

He was remanded in custody to the Oberstown children Detention Campus and is due back before the Children’s Court tomorrow morning.

Earlier: Funeral of Ana Kriegel to take place today

The funeral of murdered schoolgirl Ana Kriegel takes place today.

The 14-year-old was found dead in a derelict farmhouse in the Lucan area of Dublin earlier this month.

A 13-year-old boy was charged with her murder last week.

Ana's funeral will take place at Newlands Cross Crematorium in Dublin and the family have asked mourners to wear "sparkle and colour" because that is what she loved.

A notice on RIP.ie earlier this week said: “Ana loved sparkle and colour. The family wish for the dress code to reflect this.

“Family flowers only please. Donations, if desired, to the Russian Irish Adoption group. A donations box will be available at the Crematorium.”
