GARDAÍ HAVE ASKED for anyone with any information relating to a shooting in Dublin last year to come forward.

Paul Cullen was shot several times at the Cabra House just after 7pm on Sunday 3 March as he sat drinking with family members – including his disabled father, who is confined to a wheelchair.

At 7.04pm on the night, a motorcycle with two people pulled up on the footpath outside the pub.

The pillion passenger entered the premises and shot Cullen, causing him fatal injuries, before making his escape on the waiting motorcycle.

With the first anniversary of the murder tomorrow, investigating gardaí said that they would like to thank those who have come forward in providing information surrounding this incident and have again renewed their appeal to the public for information.

Gardaí say they are particularly keen to talk to anyone that may have seen what is described as a dark coloured medium sized motorcycle with a driver and a pillion passenger dressed in dark clothing, in and around Fassaugh Avenue at the time of the shooting.

They are also appealing for information which may lead to the recovery of the motorcycle and firearm used in this incident.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Cabra Garda Station 01 6667400 or the Garda Confidential Line 1800 666 111.
