The body of a woman and an infant boy have been discovered in Dublin today.

The body of a woman was found at Lower Road, Strawberry Beds in Lucan at 3:45 am after reports of a pedestrian seen acting suspiciously at the M50 toll plaza bridge.

Following this incident, Gardaí went to a house in Lucan where an 7-month-old baby boy was found in an unresponsive condition. He was pronounced dead at the scene a short time later.

The body of the infant has been removed to Crumlin Hospital and the body of the woman has been removed to the City Morgue where the results of post-mortem examinations will determine the course of Garda investigations.

Family Tragedy

At this stage investigating Gardaí are treating these incidents as a family tragedy and are not currently seeking anyone else in connection with the deaths.

An incident room has be established at Lucan Garda Station and a technical examination of the scene has taken place. The Coroner and Office of the State Pathologist have been notified.

The family of the mother and child have appealed for privacy at this sad time.

Investigations are ongoing.
