It has been three months since a baby girl was found at a Greenstar recycling plant in Bray, Co. Wicklow, and gardaí have today launched a fresh appeal for information.


The child was found at the plant by a company employee who was working on-site at the time; and in the absence of parents or any known relatives, the authorities named her Alannah.


The tot was laid to rest a week later, in Redford Cemetary, Greystones.



Superintendent Pat Ward, who is handling the case, has this week appealed to the public for help filling in the missing pieces of Alannah’s story.


In a new statement, Superintendent Ward said: “I am concerned for the welfare of baby Alannah’s mum. She is most likely in an anxious state of mind and in need of medical assistance. I appeal to Mum to immediately seek medical treatment.”



“Myself or Sergeant Sorcha Fitzpatrick are available at Bray Garda Station to provide assistance to Mum and Dad. We will handle any contact discreetly and sensitively,” he added.


Anyone with information that could be of use to the gardaí are asked to get in touch on 01- 6665300 (Bray Garda Station). Alternatively, you can call The Garda Confidential Telephone Line, on 1800 666 111.


SHARE to spread the word and, hopefully, help the gardaí solve this case.
