The closest hospital would be about 15km away.
.Garda Edel Dugdale and Garda Grace Murray immediately responded with lifesaving CPR. The baby regained consciousness and was cared for until paramedics soon arrived.
The quick reaction of both Gardaí combined with their skill and ability to remain calm in this pressurised situation, is a fitting example of the everyday acts that members do to keep people safe.
We are relieved to know that both baby and mother are now doing well and have fully recovered from what must have been a traumatic experience.
We’d like to thank this young mother for placing her trust in local Gardaí to help at a time of need.
