The Offaly crew responded to the scene at the Applegreen Service Station in Caragh, Co Kildare where an expectant mother had unexpectedly gone into labour.
Baby Ellie was delivered at around 6pm on Wednesday, February 3.
National Ambulance Service Ireland Chief Ambulance Officer for North Leinster, Richard Quinlan, congratulated the parents on the birth after sharing a photograph of the new arrival on Twitter.
One ambulance officer and a chief ambulance officer were involved in the delivery.
The crew then transferred mother and baby to the Coombe Hospital where they are doing well.
