Gardai are investigating whether two young boys were involved in the alleged rape of a 14-year-old girl at a teenage disco in Leitrim.

According to the Irish Independent the two teenagers, who are roughly the same age as the alleged victim, have not yet been arrested.

The girl has said she was raped by the two boys on Friday July 28th.

Gardai have confirmed that a full investigation team has been assembled in Carrick-on-Shannon to investigate the incident, which is reported to have happened in the grounds of Cartown nightclub.

The alleged incident is understood to have happened outside.

Gardai are appealing to anyone who was at the event on the night in question between 8pm and midnight to contact them.

The teenager said she was attacked by the two boys after leaving the venue.

She is said to have confided in her friend after the attack, who told her own parents and whose mother immediately contacted Gardai.
