A man has appeared in court charged as part of an investigation into a shooting incident on Monday that injured three people, including a baby boy.

Dan Donovan, formerly of Parslickstown Gardens in Dublin 15, is accused of having a shotgun in his possession at that address and of threatening to kill someone.

Garda Michael Jones said it would be alleged that Dan Donovan’s family is involved in an ongoing feud with members of the Collins’ family over a “clandestine relationship between a man and a woman with an intellectual disability”.

A statement from the partner of Michael Collins was read out as part of the Garda objection to bail for the 48-year-old father-of-fifteen.

After some words were exchanged outside a house in Parslickstown Gardens, she said a woman came out with a gun and fired a shot at Mr. Collins through a fence.

She said he ducked and she heard a teenage boy say he’d been shot. She said a baby boy was also shot and she saw blood on his leg.

Garda Jones said the baby has gunshot pellets in his leg and is in Temple St. Children’s Hospital being treated for a broken ankle.

She claims the accused then took the gun off the woman and claims he pointed it at Michael Collins’ head and said: “I’ll bury you forever”.

He has been charged with unlawful possession of a shotgun and making a threat to kill and was remanded in custody this evening with consent to bail.
