Pregnant Irish woman seeking daughter after two sons jumps off cliff

London: An Irish woman who wished to have a daughter jumped to her death from a cliff after learning that she was pregnant with twin boys after already having two sons. Anna Byrne, 35, a nurse from Dunboyne town was left devastated when ultrasound scans in March this year showed she would be having two more boys, Daily Mail reported.

She was in the last days of her pregnancy and was due to give birth by caesarean section.

Byrne, who desperately wanted a daughter, jumped off a cliff-top when she discovered the twins she was carrying were boys, a coroner's court has been told.

The woman was left devastated when the ultrasound scans showed that she was pregnant with twin boys.

Months before her death, Byrne noticed baby girls everywhere and avoided her friends - particularly those with daughters.

In the early hours of March 8, six days after attending a psychiatrist complaining that she was feeling low, she jumped from a cliff-top at Howth summit, Dublin, the city's Coroner's Court was told.
