A 29-year-old man has been remanded in custody until later this month on gun charges related to the shooting of a young woman in an attack on a house in the northside of Cork city last weekend.
Gavin Sheehan of Laurel Ridge, Shanakiel was arrested in the early hours of last Sunday morning by Gardaí investigating the shooting of Ciara Sheehan in Hollyhill.
The DPP issued directions to charge the man last night and he was brought before Cork District Court today.
The accused is charged with three offences, namely possessing a handgun, a 9mm calibre round and with recklessly discharging a weapon.
Gavin Sheehan made no reply when the charges were put to him.
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.
Ms Sheehan is continuing her recovery in Cork University Hospital.
In a Facebook post earlier today Ms Sheehan thanked people for their well wishes.
“I just want to say thank you to everyone for the well wishes and all the nice messages," said Ms Sheehan.
“I'm getting there day by day.”
