Dublin's north inner city shootings 'a cancer that is eating away at the heart of a great community'

Shootings in Dublin's north inner city are being described as a "cancer" eating away at the community.

It follows last night's gun attack shortly after 10.30pm on Sheriff Street in which a 24-year-old man was injured.

Gardaí are appealing for witnesses to the shooting which is not being linked to the Hutch Kinahan feud

Local councillor Níal Ring says residents in the area have had enough of the violence.

"They are sick and tired of it, to be honest," said Mr Ring.

"I'd describe it as a cancer that is eating away at the heart of a great community.

"We just want an end to it. Anything or anybody who can put an end to all of this - it would be really welcomed by the people of the north inner city, to get on and have a normal life."
