A man and a woman have been arrested in connection with the death of a 10 week old baby girl in Longford in June of last year.

The man in his 30’s and a woman in her 20’s were arrested in Naas, Co Kildare and in Dublin this morning.

An inquest into her death heard that following a post mortem the Assistant State Pathologist Dr Linda Mulligan gave the cause of death as acute subdural hemorrhage.

That inquest which opened in July last year was adjourned pending a garda investiation into the circumstances surrounding her death.

As part of that investigation a man and a woman were arrested in Naas and in Dublin this morning.

Both were taken to Longford Garda station where they are being detained under Section 4 of Criminal Justice Act.
