A man in his 30s is in a stable condition in hospital after he was shot in west Dublin.
The shooting happened in the Castlecurragh area of Mulhuddart shortly after 5:30pm yesterday evening.
The man was shot twice after being approached by two men wearing balaclavas
He was rushed to Connolly Hospital in Blanchardstown with serious injuries.
Gardaí say no arrests have been made.
Two cars were later removed from the scene of the shooting, and Garda forensic teams are examining a burnt out car which was found nearby in the Huntstown area. It's not yet known if both sites are connected.
Local Sinn Fein Councillor Paul Donnelly said it's the latest incident in the area.
He said: "We're faced with another person who's been seriously injured in the Mulhuddart area... it's very sad.
"We were hoping that with the successes over the last number of weeks by the gardaí that they would have had some impact... unfortunately it's really still simmering away."
However, he praised gardaí for the speed of their response to the latest shooting - saying it's impossible for them to be everywhere at once.
