A MAN HAS been taken to hospital tonight after being shot in the Kilbarrack area of Dublin.

Gardaí were alerted to the shooting incident at 9.30pm at St Berach’s Place.

One man was injured and has been taken to Beaumont Hospital. A garda spokesperson said the man sustained non-life threatening injuries.

An investigation into the incident has now been launched.

In response to the shooting, Labour’s Aodhán Ó Ríordáin has called for “a Mulvey-style report” to deal with ongoing gang violence in north Dublin.

The sporadic but frantic nature of this feud is causing real concern amongst people in north Dublin communities. It is time for genuine evaluation of the root causes of this feud and potential solutions are needed.

He emphasised the difference the Mulvey Report made to the North Inner City.

“Proper investment and respect for that process made a huge difference. We need to see a similar exercise across the northside immediately,” he said.
