A man is due in court this morning charged in connection with the shooting of a young woman in Cork at the weekend, writes Eoin English of the Irish Examiner.
The 29-year-old man, who has been in custody since his arrest soon after Ciara Sheehan was shot in the neck after a gun was fired through the window of her boyfriend's house early on Sunday morning, is due to be charged with three firearms offences.
It follows consultation between the Gardaí and the DPP in the early hours of this morning.
Meanwhile, Ms Sheehan, who is continuing her recovery in Cork University Hospital, has taken to Facebook this morning to thank people for their well wishes.
"I just want to say thank you to everyone for the well wishes and all the nice messages," she said.
"I'm getting there day by day.
"It hasn't clicked (with) me yet but I will get there and I'm feeling a lot better. On the road to recovery now so onwards and upwards."
A woman aged 22 and a man in his late 60s arrested as part of the investigation have been released without charge and a file is being prepared for the DPP.
