A man remains in a critical condition in hospital this morning after a shooting in Dublin last night.

It happened in the Moatview area of Coolock at around 8.15pm.

Gardaí were called to Moatview Gardens, where they found a 36-year-old man in the front garden of a house.

He had a 'very serious' injury after being shot in the head.

Emergency services treated the man at the scene, before he was taken to Beaumont Hospital by ambulance.

He remains in intensive care.

The scene has been preserved, and a Garda technical examination is set to take place.

Speaking this morning, superintendent Gerard Donnelly said: "No motive at this stage has been identified for this shooting.

"While we're at the early stages of this investigation, I would like to make an appeal to the public for witnesses - in particular anybody who may have witnessed the shooting at Moatview Gardens, and anybody who may have been in the Moatview Gardens area or the general Priorswood area between 7pm and 8.30pm last night."

Gardaí are asking anyone with information to come forward and contact Coolock Garda Station on 01-666-4200, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800-666-111, or any Garda station.
