Gardai have launched an appeal for information into the murder of a baby in South Dublin almost 50 years ago.

The body of Baby Noleen Murphy was found in a laneway in Dun Laoghaire in April 1973.

The violent murder of baby Noleen Murphy is shocking and upsetting to recall but her mother hopes she can finally get her baby justice.

Baby Noleen was killed within 24 hours of being born and her body was left in a car park off a laneway in Dun Laoghaire.

Her mother, Cynthia Owen, was only 11 years old at the time and says she had been raped and sold to men for sex.
