The young girl just started attending a local school weeks ago. Both she and her mother were staying at a centre for refugees after fleeing the war in Ukraine.

Emergency services were called to a house in Clarecastle before 8 am on September 28th.

They were both taken to University Hospital Limerick in a critical condition.

According to reports, the young girl suffered severe stab wounds.
