Gardaí confirm skeletal is not Ciara Breen missing since 1997

Gardaí have confirmed that the remains found in Louth are NOT those of missing Ciara Breen.

The 17-year-old disappeared in February 1997.

She went missing from her home in Bachelor's walk, less than 200 metres away from where the remains were found.

A house in Dundalk remains sealed off after skeletal remains were found at the rear of a property on Mary Street North while building work was underway yesterday.

A forensic anthropologist has now determined that the bones are historical and could date back to famine times  or beyond.
