More than 100 people attended a candlelit vigil last night for the baby whose body was found on a beach in Dublin.
The body of the infant was discovered on Bell Beach in Balbriggan on Saturday morning.
Gardaí are still appealing for the mother of the baby, who has been named Belle, to come forward.
