A man has been shot dead in north Dublin.

Gardaí are at the scene of the incident, which happened at around 4pm on Wednesday.

It happened in the Marigold Road area of Darndale, in a laneway next to Our Lady Immaculate National School.

The victim - who was in his 20s - was shot multiple times, and was pronounced dead at the scene.

An incident room has been set up at Coolock Garda Station.

Gardaí are appealing for anyone who was in the area shortly before 4pm to contact them in Coolock on 01-666-4200, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800-666-111, or any Garda station.

Second fatal shooting

It is the second fatal shooting in the capital in less than 24 hours.

A man - believed to be aged in his 20s - was found dead beside a car on fire at Walshestown, Balbriggan at 11:20pm on Tuesday night.

He was shot a number of times and sustained injuries to his head and chest.

Justice Minister Charlie Flanagan has condemned the fatal shootings, as well as another incident in which shots were fired in west Dublin yesterday.

In a statement, he said: "I utterly condemn any violent loss of life and I am extremely concerned about the three shooting incidents that took place in Balbriggan, Mulhuddart and Darndale in the past 24 hours.

"An Garda Síochána are now conducting full enquiries into the circumstances surrounding these incidents and I would appeal to anyone who has information which could help to please come forward to them as soon as possible.

"Any information, no matter how small, could play a vital part in bringing the perpetrators of these acts to justice."

Gardaí can be contacted anonymously on the Garda Confidential Line at 1800-666-111.
