The Tipperary village of Dundrum is today coming to terms with the tragic death of a baby, who, it is understood, was mistakenly left in a car on the hottest day of the year so far.
After being found unresponsive yesterday afternoon, the seven-month-old girl was airlifted to University Hospital Limerick where she passed away.
The incident has been described by gardai as a personal tragedy, and they are liaising with family members since the incident happened.
Cllr Roger Kennedy who knows the family noted that ‘people’s sympathy and prayers are with them at this time’ and has urged the community to support the family.
Meanwhile, Cllr Martin Browne has asked users of social media to be aware of the effects their critical comments may have on the people they aim them towards.
Cllr Browne was speaking after seeing a number of comments made in relation to the tragedy on social media, some of which he described as ‘unbelievable’.
