A baby boy was delivered outside a garda station this morning after a mother 'couldn't make it to hospital'.
Dublin Fire Brigade paramedics were called to the scene outside Kevin Street station in Dublin at 10am on Tuesday.
A spokesman explained: "The mother was on her way to the Coombe Hospital. However, when they made it to Kevin Street station she couldn't go any further.
"She had to deliver there and then."
