LARGE crowds are expected tomorrow at the removal of two-year-old Santina Cawley, the toddler who was murdered in the city last week.
The body of little Santina will be reposing at O'Connor Bros funeral home, North Gate Bridge, from 2pm tomorrow afternoon with removal to The North Cathedral at 4pm. A Mass of the Angels will take place at her funeral at 11am on Friday.
Gardaí investigating her murder issued a fresh appeal for information tonight, urging anyone who was in the Elderwood Estate or Boreenanmanna Road areas between 1am and 5.30am last Friday to contact them.
Investigators are particularly appealing to those with dash cam or mobile phone footage from the area.
Santina was found in a critical condition at the Elderwood complex shortly after 5am last Friday. She was rushed to hospital but later died from her injuries.
A murder investigation was launched following a post-mortem examination on the toddler’s body.
Gardaí arrested a woman in her 30s this week. She was later released without charge and a file will be prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions.
