A woman who was arrested yesterday as part of the ongoing investigation into the death of four-year-old Mason O'Connell in Rathbane, Co Limerick, in March 2021 has been released without charge. 

The female who is aged in her 20s had been arrested under a warrant issued by a District Court Judge under Section 10 of the Criminal Justice Act, 1984.

It forms part of the ongoing investigation into the death of the boy in Rathbane, Limerick, in March.

Mason died after suffering injuries at a house in Rathbane, Limerick on March 13 of this year.

An inquest into the child’s death, which opened at Dublin Coroner’s Court in June, heard that the boy suffered fatal injuries after an apparent fall from a bunkbed while staying at Sycamore Avenue in Rathbane, Limerick on March 13, 2021.

He died three days later at Children’s Hospital Ireland, Temple Street, having been earlier treated at University Hospital Limerick and Cork University Hospital.

Gardai said a file will now be prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions.

“Investigations are ongoing,” they added.
