The mother of the babies claims they were born after she was raped by her father
A search has begun in Dublin by Gardai investigating allegations a woman was raped and gave birth to two babies, several decades ago.
The woman claims the babies were killed and buried in the back garden of a house, during the late sixties and seventies.
Gardai served a search warrant at an address in south Dublin earlier this evening.
It is anticipated the search will last for up to a month.
Gardai say the results of the dig will determine the future direction of the investigation.
