A young girl, who was discovered with serious injuries at a house in Co Clare on Tuesday, is believed to have been moved to a Dublin hospital for treatment.
She and a woman were found at a house in Clarecastle at around 8.00am on Tuesday.
The property was believed to have been used to accommodate refugees from Ukraine, with around a dozen other people there at the time.
The families staying there have since been moved to emergency accommodation.
Reporter Pat Flynn told Newstalk Breakfast the woman and girl are still critical.
"They found a young girl with serious injuries, and she was quickly removed to University Hospital Limerick in a critical condition.
"A woman was also found at the scene in a collapsed state, and she was also transferred to UHL.
"We believe though that the girl has since been transferred to a hospital in Dublin for specialist treatment.
"We think she sustained multiple serious injuries.
"We believe that both the young girl and the woman - we still don't know whether they are related - are both in a critical condition in hospital".
An incident room has been set up at Ennis Garda station, and a senior investigating officer has been appointed to oversee the investigation.
A Family Liaison Officer has also been appointed to the family.
An Garda Síochána is appealing for anyone with information to contact Ennis Garda station on 065-6848-100, the Garda Confidential Line at 1800-666-111 or any Garda station.
