Health chiefs have launched an investigation into the death of a baby at a national neonatal unit.
It is understood the infant was ill when he was born and he was subsequently transferred to a specialist neonatal unit at the Rotunda Hospital in Dublin.
"As is normal procedure, the HSE will closely examine the circumstance of this case," it said in a statement.
"A clinical incident review is being planned which will involve a multi-disciplinary team reviewing all aspects of the care provided in this case."
The HSE offered its support to the child's family and the coroner has been notified.
