An investigation has taken place following the discovery of the body of a newborn baby in the boot of a car.
The body was discovered almost three weeks ago on the 29th of March, near Birr in County Offaly.
The infant was found in the boot of a car and it’s believed the mother had suffered a stillbirth in the vehicle a number of days before.
It’s understood the case came to light after she presented herself to hospital.
A post mortem, carried out on Sunday the first of April, concluded the baby died of natural causes.
Gardai are treating the case as a tragedy and a file is being prepared for the coroner.
