Baby lay dead for “several months”

Gardai investigating the discovery of a baby's body in Rathkeale have revealed that the body had been there for several months before it was discovered.

The remains of the newborn girl were discovered on July 5 but information was only released to the media this week. Gardai say they have located the mother of the child, a woman in her 20s from the county who has two other children and who had been renting the house where the body was found not long ago.

One report says that the woman is understood to have gone through a difficult period in her life and apparently gave birth to the child alone in the house.
