A teenage boy has today admitted killing Mongolian woman Urantsetseg Tserendorj in Dublin city centre last year.

The boy – who is now 16-years-old and cannot be named because he is a minor – pleaded not guilty at the Central Criminal Court to the murder of Ms Tserendorj but guilty to her manslaughter on January 29, 2021.

At the court on Dublin's Parkgate Street this afternoon, he also pleaded guilty to producing a knife and to attempting to rob Ms Tserendorj on a walkway between George’s Dock and Custom House Quay in the IFSC, Dublin on January 20, 2021.

The plea of manslaughter was not accepted by the State however, and the boy will stand trial for Ms Teserendorj’s murder later this week.

A jury of seven women and five men has been selected to hear the case, which has been scheduled to begin on Wednesday before Ms Justice Mary Ellen Ring.

It is expected that the trial will last eight days.

Ms Tserendorj was originally from Mongolia but had been living in Ireland for several years and worked as a cleaner.
