A 40-year-old woman died after being struck by a car in Drimnagh which failed to remain at the scene.

The victim was crossing the road at the Golden Bridge Luas stop, on Davitt Road, when she was hit on Friday at 10.30pm.

She was taken to St James' Hospital where she was later pronounced dead.

A man in his 30s was arrested on Saturday evening in the Drimnagh area.

He has been detained under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act at Sundrive Road Garda Station.

Gardaí are still trying to locate the car involved.

The vehicle is described as dark coloured, possibly a Ford Focus with either 08 or 09 registration.

The car left in the direction of Naas Road.

A statement from An Garda Síochána said: "This car would have damage to the front and to the windscreen. There have been reported sightings of the car in the Fonthill Road, Newlands Cross, Nangor Road and Firhouse areas."

Anyone with information about the car and its whereabouts is asked to contact Gardaí.
