Gardai are treating the deaths of a mother and her seven month old son in Dublin this morning as a family tragedy.
Midwest News understands the woman is a native of county Mayo.
Her body was found at Lower Road in Strawberry Beds after she was seen acting suspiciously on the M50 Toll Bridge at around 3:45 this morning.
Gardai then went to a house in Lucan and discovered a 7 month old baby boy in an unresponsive condition - he was pronounced dead at the scene a short time later.
The bodies of the mother and child have been removed from the scenes for post mortem examinations.
Gardai say they aren't looking for anyone else in connection with their deaths.
The names of the deceased have not been released.
