GARDAI INVESTIGATING THE shooting of a teenager in Darndale, north Dublin, yesterday evening are appealing for anyone with information to come forward.

A 19-year-old man was shot in the neck and leg and is receiving treatment at Beaumont Hospital.

The attack happened in the Primrose Grove area shortly before 9pm.

Gardaí discovered a motorbike on fire shortly after the shooting.

Reacting to news of last night’s shooting, Labour TD for Dublin Bay North, Aodhán Ó Ríordáin said: “While thankfully there has been no loss of life in this instance, it is a stark reminder that violent crime hasn’t gone away during the public health emergency.

“I have been calling for a Northside Crime Task Force that would bring together community stakeholders in Dublin Bay North for some time now, similar to the Mulvey Commission for the North Inner City.
