GARDAÍ HAVE RENEWED their appeal for witnesses to come forward following a potential hit-and-run in which a woman was seriously injured.

The incident happened at Lohunda Dale, Clonsilla, Dublin 15 at about 3.40am last Sunday, 8 May.

The woman (35) was taken to Connolly Memorial Hospital in Blanchardstown and later transferred to Beaumont Hospital. Her condition is described as critical.

Gardaí in Blanchardstown are investigating the possibility the woman was the victim of a hit-and-run.

Investigators have established that she had travelled from Harcourt Street, Dublin 2 in a taxi to the Lohunda area prior to her discovery and are seeking to identify the driver of this taxi, which is not better described.

Gardaí are appealing for witnesses or anyone with information, particularly those who may have been in the Lohunda Estate/Ongar Distributor Road area between 3.15am and 4.15am on Sunday, to contact them.

They can do so via Blanchardstown garda station on 01 6667000, the Garda Confidential Line 1800 666111 or any garda station.
