A 22-month-old girl had died after falling from the third-floor window of an apartment in Dublin's Finglas Road on Sunday.

It is believed the child, whose parents are Slovakian, entered her brother's bedroom and toppled through a window of the Tolka Vale apartment.

The girl's parents found her lying on the ground and took her to the Mater Hospital where she was pronounced dead.

A post mortem examination is to be carried out later this week.
