A MAN ARRESTED in relation to serious injuries suffered by an infant at a house in Ardee has been released without charge.

Gardaí said that a file has been prepared for the DPP who will decide if there are charges to be brought against the man.

The infant is currently in a Dublin hospital where it is understood she is being treated for serious head injuries and a number of broken bones.

She received her injuries in an incident at a house on the Bridge Street Road in Ardee, Louth on Monday. Gardaí are investigating whether the baby suffered them as a result of a fall.

Earlier, they had sought to speak to the parents about the circumstances leading up to the baby’s injuries.

Searches of the home were carried out by gardaí and CCTV in the area is being examined.

A garda spokesman said: “A 10-week-old girl from Louth was removed from a local hospital on Monday. She was transferred to a Dublin hospital where she remains in a serious condition. The circumstances around how she got the injuries [are] now under a garda investigation. No arrests have been made.”
