GardaÍ are investigating after a shooting in West Dublin last night.

A 21-year-old man was shot in the leg in Cherry Orchard just after 8pm.

He was taken to hospital with injuries that are not thought to be life-threatening.

Local councillor Daithí Doolan says it needs to stop.

He said: "I want to send out a very clear message that those involved in this gun crime will not distract or deter those of us who want to work together with the community to make Cherry Orchard a safe community for every family to work, rest and play in."
