Gardaí to begin excavating south Dublin garden in search for 'dead babies'
A search warrant was executed at the house yesterday evening.

GARDAÍ ARE PREPARING to dig up the garden of a south Dublin house after a woman alleged two children she gave birth to were murdered and buried there.

The search operation comes after a woman, who is now in her 50s, claimed she was abused by her father and other men between 1966, when she was just five, and 1977.

The woman said she gave birth to two children during that time – one when she was 12 and another when she was 14.

She alleged her mother suffocated both babies and buried them in the back garden of the house.

Ireland Live News on UTV Ireland broke news of the case last night, following months of investigation by detectives.

Gardaí confirmed that a search warrant was executed at an address in south Dublin yesterday evening as part of an investigation into the allegations. The force said the search will take two to three weeks.
