A baby girl - whose body was found at a recycling centre in Co Wicklow last week - has been laid to rest today.
More than 100 people, including members of the Gardaí and workers from the Greenstar plant in Bray, gathered to pay their final respects to baby Alannah at Redford Cemetery in Greystones.

The small white coffin carrying the body of the infant who gardaí and Greenstar staff named ‘Baby Alannah’ was lowered into the ground by four young men who worked at the plant where her remains were found on Wednesday last week.
Flowers and toys were left by the graveside - where a plaque read “Alannah - May she rest in peace”.

Dozens of people signed books of condolence at the Redford Cemetery.
The service was carried out by Reverend Alan Breen and Monsignor Enda Lloyd - who said death caused all human wisdom to fail.
Gardaí say they published details of the funeral so Alannah’s mother could visit her grave.
Reverend Alan Breen, who said prayers at the graveside, urged the parents of Baby Allanah to come forward “so they can actually get the care and attention that they actually do need”.
“I think everyone has been touched by this loss.”
Superintendent Pat Ward also previously urged Baby Alannah's family to come forward.
"We are renewing our appeal for mum or dad to come forward to seek whatever support we can give them," he said.
"They can be assured we will give them all the support they need."
Post mortem results on Baby Alannah's remains found nothing to suggest any deliberate harm was done to her, and that she may have been born some weeks earlier than initially thought.
