A post mortem has concluded that foul play was not involved in the death of a baby found dead on a Dublin beach on Sunday.

It also determined that the child was a full term baby girl.

The baby was discovered on Bell's Beach near Balbriggan, north county Dublin at 10am on Saturday by a volunteer who was cleaning the beach along the sea shore.

It is understood the remains were partially buried and the baby is Caucasian.

Gardai investigating the discovery are continuing to appeal for witnesses.

They have also appealed for the mother of the baby to come forward and asked anyone with information to contact the Garda.
