A child-minder is to go on trial for a second time next May accused of causing serious harm to a ten-month-old baby.
34-year-old Sandra Higgins of The Beeches, Drumgola Wood, Cavan town, Co Cavan denies the charge of intentionally or recklessly causing serious harm to the baby on March 28, 2012.
An eight-day trial ended last month when a jury were unable to reach a decision in the case.
Today the court heard there were difficulties with scheduling expert medical witnesses for the second trial and that a date in May would be preferable to all sides.
Judge Martin Nolan set a trial date for May 25 next year.
