A man is still being questioned by gardaí about a triple shooting in west Dublin on Monday.

He was detained after an eight-month-old baby, a woman (29) and a teenager (17) were injured in what is believed to be a feud-related attack in Mulhuddart.

Their conditions are not believed to be life-threatening.

They were struck by a number of pellets believed to be from a shotgun.

The shooting happened at Parlickstown Gardens at around 12.30pm.

A man has been arrested on suspicion of possessing ammunition and is being held at Blanchardstown garda station.

The investigation is on-going and gardaí are appealing for witnesses.

Arthur Collins is grandfather to the injured baby.

Traveller groups are appealing for feuding families in west Dublin to avail of mediation services.

Interim director of the Irish Traveller Movement, Susan Shaw, is urging those involved to find a peaceful solution.

"To look at a different way of managing this tragedy, really.

"So for us it would be if the community can look at not staying with traditional methods and thinking about medication as another way of resolving this - we would back all of those calls for that".
