The woman has an address in Kildare.

A woman with an address in Kildare has been sent forward for trial to the circuit court in Dublin accused of sharing the identity of a boy convicted of murdering a teenage girl.

The boy and another youth convicted of the same offence were juveniles and have the legal right to anonymity.

Niall Colbert reports:

"Hazel Fitzpatrick, a 25-year-old mother-of-two, with an address at Easton Green, Leixlip, Co. Kildare, appeared at Dublin District Court today and was served with a book of evidence by the prosecution.

It was alleged she posted text and pictures on Facebook, Garda Eamonn O'Neill had told the court earlier.

The post allegedly said that the youths should not be allowed see light again, and that everyone should see who the are".

She was one of 10 people brought before Dublin District Court accused of breaking the anonymity provisions of the Children Act by illegally sharing images or naming the two boys.

Leeanda Farrelly, 27, of Kilmartin Avenue, Tallaght, allegedly posted an image of one of the killers on Facebook.

She is to be served with a book of evidence next week.

The remaining defendants, six men and two other women, all from Dublin, are to appear at the district court in July.

They are also to be served with books of evidence and to have their cases transferred to the circuit court."
