THE BABY WHOSE remains were found in a Bray recycling plant last week will be laid to rest tomorrow.

The baby, who has been named Alannah by those dealing with the case, was found in the Greenstar recycling facility last Wednesday.

A special ceremony will be held at 12pm tomorrow in Redford Cemetery near the Wicklow town at which the child’s remains will be buried.

Gardaí say there is no evidence of any deliberate injuries and the Irish Independent quotes local Superintendent Pat Ward as saying they are releasing details of the burial to allow the mother attend.

Ward has previously appealed for the mother to seek medical attention.

I would please ask for the mum to seek immediate medical treatment. I am available here at Bray garda station to help the mum and dad of this baby girl and if they would contact me or Sergeant Sorcha Fitzpatrick here at Bray Garda Station we will deal with any contact with us discreetly and sensitively.

He also appealed for anyone connected to the mum and dad, like any friends or family members who may have information, however small, to get in touch. An incident room has been established and gardaí are liaising with the HSE.

They can be contacted at the station on 01 6665300, through the Garda Confidential Telephone Line 1800 666 111 or at any garda station.
