GardaÍ investigating an accident which left a young mother fighting for her life have arrested a taxi driver in relation to the incident.

Siobhan Geraghty (35) was seriously injured in what gardaí are treating as a hit-and-run.

Investigating officers from Blanchardstown garda station arrested a man in his 40s in the early hours of yesterday morning. Sources revealed the individual was detained while driving his taxi in the Baggot Street area of Dublin city centre.

Ms Geraghty, who remains in a serious condition in Beaumont Hospital, took a taxi to her home at the Lohunda Dale estate in Clonsilla from Harcourt Street at around 3.40am on May 8. However, the primary school teacher never made it home and was discovered lying unconscious by the road in the Lohunda area.
