Gardai in Dublin have launched an investigation into the unexplained death of a baby and also the discovery of a woman's body.

The body of a woman was found on the Lower Road, Strawberry Beds, Lucan this morning.

Her body was found shortly after a pedestrian was seen acting suspiciously at the M50 toll plaza bridge.

Following this discovery, Gardai went to a house in Lucan where a baby boy was found in an unresponsive condition.

The 7-month-old was pronounced dead at the scene a short time later.

It's understood the woman found dead was the infant's mother and was in her 30's.

The results of post-mortem examinations will determine the course of Garda investigations.

However, at this stage Gardaí are treating these incidents as a Family tragedy and are not currently seeking anyone else in connection with the deaths.
