Dublin Circuit Criminal Court was cleared before the hearing began due to the sensitive nature of the case.

However a social worker was allowed remain in the court room when he explained to the presiding judge he wanted to hear all the charges, as there are concerns about the welfare of another child - a sixth - in the woman’s care.

Judge Martin Nolan then adjourned the case until February when all evidence will be heard.
