A 23-year-old woman has appeared in court charged in connection with a shooting in West Dublin on Monday.

A 29 year old mother, her eight-month-old baby and a 17-year-old boy were all injured in the shooting in Mulhuddart.

The incident occurred on Monday afternoon at Parslickstown Gardens.

This morning, 23-year-old Charlene Donovan – formerly of Parslickstown Gardens, Dublin 15 – appeared before Blanchardstown District Court charged with the possession of a shotgun with intent to endanger life.

The court heard she made no reply after the charge was put to her at Blanchardstown Garda Station last night.

She was remanded in custody for a bail application at a later date. 

The Judge ordered that date shouldn’t be revealed for security reasons after he heard there are concerns there would be public order problems.

Yesterday evening, Charlene Donavan’s dad also appeared in court charged as part of the investigation.

48-year-old Dan Donovan, was accused of possessing a firearm and making a threat to kill.

The court heard it would be alleged the Donovan family is involved in an ongoing feud with another family.

The dad of 15 was remanded in custody with consent to bail.
