Morning top 5: Shooting in Dublin; FBI reopens Hilary Clinton email investigation, and breakthrough in Garda dispute

The top stories this Saturday morning

Gardai have launched an inquiry after a man in his sixties escaped a shooting at a Dublin housing estate.

Shots were fired at the man shortly after 7pm last night, as he sat in a car at Rathbeale Crescent in Swords.

A black Audi - which Gardai believe was used in the shooting - was found on fire a short time later, on a back road near Dublin Airport.

Gardai at Swords are appealing for information.


The FBI has opened a fresh investigation into Hillary Clinton's personal emails following the discovery of new messages.

FBI director James Comey said the probe will examine whether the new emails - connected to an "unrelated case" - contain sensitive government information.

However, in Mr Comey's letter to key Republican committee chairmen in the House of Representatives and Senate, he said he cannot yet tell whether the new messages are significant.


There's been another breakthrough in the Garda dispute.

The AGSI and the GRA have both agreed to attend talks with the Department of Justice, in a bid to avert next Friday's threatened strike action.

The dispute relates to management's use of tracker information in disciplinary hearings, without the agreement of the workers involved.

Approximately 150 SIPTU members are employed in the outdoor works department of Roscommon County Council.


At least 21 people have been injured after a plane caught fire on the runway at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport.
