The baby girl spent some time in the care of hospital staff before being released, and she is said to be thriving in the care of a foster family.
She could potentially remain in foster care until the age of 18, as only a biological parent can sign adoption papers.
Gardai remain concerned for the welfare of Baby Maria’s mother, and have reissued appeals for her to come forward.
