Gardaí have arrested a man and a woman in relation to the death of a baby girl last year.

The female infant died in Longford on June 4, 2017.

The man, in his early 30s, was arrested in Naas this morning, while the woman, aged in her early 20s, was arrested in Dublin this morning.

Both have been taken to Longford Garda Station, where they are detained under Section 4 of Criminal Justice Act, 1984.

The baby girl was found with head injuries at her home in June of last year. She was subsequently rushed to hospital but died some time later.

Gardai have been investigating the baby's death for close to a year before the arrests this morning, and say that their investigation is ongoing.
