A MAN HAS appeared in court charged in connection with a shooting in Dundalk in which a man in his 30s was injured and taken to Our Lady of Lourdes hospital in Drogheda.

Pauric Kelly (27) of Cedarwood Park, Cox’s Demesne, Dundalk appeared before a special sitting of Drogheda District Court charged with assault causing harm to a man at a house in Oliver Plunkett Park, Dundalk, as well as the reckless discharge of a firearm at the same address on the same date.
