The Department of Foreign Affairs says it is offering consular assistance to anyone who needs it after the death of an Irish woman in Morocco.
A spokesperson for the department said they are aware of the death.
However, the circumstances of the death are currently unclear.
Local reports suggest that the deceased is a woman, who was living in Taghazout.
The Department is reported to be working with the Irish embassy in Madrid, as there is no Irish embassy in Morocco.
Prosecutors in Australia have dropped the chargers against a 25-year-old Irish woman who was accused of hiding the body of her deceased baby.
The incident happened in May of this summer when the woman was backpacking in Hall’s Creek, Western Australia with friends where she delivered a baby that was either stillborn, or died after birth.
The woman, who said she had not realised she was pregnant, hid the body but days later told her friends what had happened and was taken to hospital.
As concealing a birth is illegal, the woman was arrested but was allowed to return home to be with her family while awaiting a trial.
However, it has now been decided that the charges against her will be dropped.
