They brought the child directly to University Hospital Limerick where he was put into the care of medical staff.Subsequently, an application under the Child Care Act was made at Limerick Court by Muiris Gavin solicitor acting for Tusla, the Child and Family Welfare Agency, to have the little boy placed in emergency foster care for 28 days.Objecting to the application, defence counsel for the young mother, Erin O’Hagan BL, said she denied she was heavily intoxicated and that she had four bottles of Budweiser before an incident occurred at the apartment.Ms O’Hagan said that something happened to the company she was with and they just turned on her. She said there was an assault and she fled the apartment. The child had been dressed in warmer baby grows but they were taken off as the apartment was warm.She told Judge Mary Larkin that “the child presented very well and was meeting all his milestones at every appointment and when unannounced visits were made to the home, he always presented well and no alcohol was ever found in the apartment.”However, Mr Gavin said that the drinking habits of the mother had been of concern to Tusla and that she needed to address these before the matter could be resolved.Judge Larkin granted the 28-day emergency foster care order and adjourned the case until January 18.
