Dublin man shot five times but survives

Bodybuilder manages to walk to ambulance after what is being described as an assassination attempt.

A MUSIC PROMOTER and bodybuilder was shot five times last night in Dublin but is holding on to life in hospital.

The man, named by the Irish Daily Star and the Irish Independent this morning as Sean Enright, 30, from Clonsilla was shot outside his girlfriend’s house at Rusheeny, Clonsilla just after 9pm.

Enright was attacked by a man wielding a handgun as he pulled up in a blue Volkwagen Golf at Rusheeny Manor. The car’s window on the driver’s side and the windscreen bear bulletholes from the attack.

One witness told the Independent that Enright managed to walk over to the ambulance that was called to the scene and climbed into it. His condition in hospital is being described as stable.

Michael O’Toole in the Star says that Enright was hit five times, in the arm, leg and chest, but that nine shots were fired at him in total.

Gardai in Blanchardstown are appealing for witnesses to contact them on 01 6667000 or on the Garda confidential line on freephone 1800 250 025.

Sean Enright runs Universal Gym in Ballycoolin, Dublin 11 and is a champion amateur body builder. He is also the promoter for the Escapefest dance music festival at Fairyhouse in Meath.

This was the scene at Rusheeny Manor in Clonsilla this morning:
