GARDAI investigating the discovery of a teenage girl’s body in south Dublin are treating the incident as a ‘personal tragedy’.

The body of the 15-year-old girl was discovered on or near the grounds of Cabinteely Community School, located on the Johnstown Rd in Dublin, this morning (Tuesday).

It is understood the girl’s body was found by a male student at the school and that students were sent home for the day following the discovery.

Gardai attended the scene but a spokesperson last night said they are not treating the death as suspicious.

Local councillor Maria Bailey said the community was shocked by the sad news. "Our thoughts go out to the family at this very difficult time. For something like this to happen to someone so young is really very upsetting. I know the community will rally around the family to offer them any support needed at this sad time."

Local representative Vinny Duran Kearns posted on Facebook: “A sad day today for the local community, my thoughts and prayers are with the young girl, her family and anyone else who has been directly affected by today's discovery .
