Two men injured in lunchtime pub shooting in Dublin's Cabra House

One man in his 20s was targeted in the attack while a man in his 40s was also slightly injured.

A 23-YEAR-OLD man was shot in the shoulder in a shooting in Dublin this afternoon.

The man was shot by what is understood to have been a lone gunman who entered the Cabra House pub on Faussagh Avenue in Dublin 7 at 1.30pm. A Garda spokesperson told that another man, in his 40s, was also slightly injured in the attack.

The 23-year-old man is currently in hospital receiving treatment for a “non-life-threatening” wound.

Gardai at Cabra station are appealing for information on the lunchtime shooting.

Just over a year ago, another man was shot dead in a pub on Faussagh Avenue. That time it was the Faussagh House and the victim was gangland Eamon Dunne. The Sunday Tribune at the time said that Dunne often wore a bulletproof vest and was accompanied by bodyguards – but the precautions did not prevent him being shot eight times in the head and face in the busy pub in April last year.
