A pregnant woman has unexpectedly given birth in the middle of the city centre. The expectant mother was on her way for a routine check up this morning when nature took its course on Hatch Street.
Dublin Fire Brigade officers rushed to the scene, but the woman's little girl had already been delivered with the help of her partner and some passers-by.
The mother and her baby were taken to hospital to be checked over, and are said to be doing well.
Last month, fire crews helped deliver a baby in Lucan.
