TWO MEN ARE understood to remain in hospital this evening after a shooting incident in Glasnevin in Dublin this morning.

A 52-year-old man was found shot in the stomach at 8.15am this morning on Glasnevin Avenue on the north side of the city before being taken to the Mater Hospital.

A short time later, a man in his 30s was found a short distance away in Hillcrest Park with gunshot wounds to his leg. He was taken to Beaumont Hospital.

Gardaí say that both incidents were connected and investigations are continuing into the circumstances of the two shootings.
