GARDAÍ are appealing for information following the sudden and unexplained death of an 11-month-old baby boy at an apartment complex in Killarney yesterday.
The baby's body was removed from the apartment shortly before 2pm today.
Members of the Garda Technical Bureau attended the scene, an apartment at Upper High Street. A post-mortem will be carried out this evening.
The alarm was raised by the baby's mother shortly before 6pm on Sunday when she returned home to the apartment, from work at a hotel. Gardaí and emergency services were called.
The baby was treated at the scene by emergency services personnel but pronounced dead a short time later. A male aged in his 30s with serious injuries was taken from the scene by ambulance to University Hospital Kerry, Tralee, where he is continuing to receive treatment.
The Assistant State Pathologist, Dr Margot Bolster, carried out a preliminary examination at the scene.
A case conference involving investigating Gardaí was held this morning. An incident room was established at Killarney Garda Station and a Garda Family Liaison Officer has been appointed in the case.
Members from the Garda Technical Bureau are continuing to examine the scene and the baby’s body has now been removed to University Hospital Kerry where a post-mortem examination will take place.
The results of the post-mortem will determine the course of the investigation.
Investigating Gardaí are appealing for witnesses. They are particularly appealing to anyone who was in the vicinity of Park Place Apartments between 1pm and 6pm yesterday evening (March 6) to contact them.

Spa GAA club has signed up to participate in the Ireland Lights Up winter walking initiative.

The lights will be on every Wednesday night between 7pm and 8pm for the next few weeks at the club’s new walking track. This week marked the second week of night walking but the club also held a candle-light vigil in memory of Ashling Murphy, the Offaly school-teacher who was murdered while out for a walk two weeks ago.

“Participants can follow the walking track that offers a safe off-road path and this activity is open to everyone in the community. If anyone would be available to help with registration or stewarding any night, all help is greatly appreciated,” said club PRO Deirdre O’Sullivan-Darcy.

Any volunteers that can help any evening or any questions please contact Margaret Doyle on 0879181970.

Killarney Municipal District is to appoint the services of a tree specialist to exam the condition of trees in the wider district.

The move follows last December’s Storm Barra. during which several tress were toppled. 
One motorist had a lucky escape when a tree fell on their car during the storm. Another fallen tree blocked access to the Moll’s Gap road near Muckross.
Both Cllrs John O’Donoghue and Donal Grady raised the issue at a recent Killarney Municipal District meeting.
“In order to mitigate against such events, the Killarney MD Office are in the process of preparing tender documents to procure assessment of specific trees that are in the charge of Kerry County Council.” A council official told the meeting.
“This will allow the MD to make determinations on individual trees in its charge. Individual property owners are responsible for the welfare and maintenance of trees within and along the boundary of their property lines.”
