The entire community of Leixlip is grieving following the tragic death of Ana. Here at LYCC we knew Ana well as she was a member of many clubs at the Centre and was regularly in and out. We at the Community Centre sympathise deeply with all of the Kreigal family at this time.

In Leixlip the events of the last few days have greatly impacted all of us, those who knew her and those who did not. Ana will remain in all our hearts and minds as we try and come to terms with this tragedy.
