Interviews with the lady detained in relation to the death of six-year-old Matthew Healy, who was involved in an incident at Rathmoylan in County Waterford on Friday, are planned for today or the next few days by the Gardaí investigating the event, reports RTE.

Because she has been under medical care since her detention, the lady has not yet been formally interrogated by investigating gardaí.

Detectives won’t interrogate her unless they determine that she is medically fit. It is possible that she may be judged well enough to interview later today or early this week.

Friday just after midnight, Matthew was found in a vehicle in the Dunmore East neighbourhood, reports RTE.

He was attended to by emergency personnel on the spot and taken to University Hospital Waterford by ambulance. There, in the wee hours of the morning, he was pronounced deceased.

The 30-year-old lady was taken into custody early on Friday morning in the vicinity of the incident in Rathmoylan Cove, around 15 kilometres away from Waterford city.

Matthew resided in the Waterford suburb of Ballygunner. He attended Faithlegg National School as a senior infants student, reports RTE.
