Two men are still in a critical condition in hospital following Sunday night's shooting in Dublin.

A third man was also injured in the attack which happened outside the Players Lounge on Fairview Strand.

One line of inquiry being followed is that the shooting could be linked to tension over the control of the security sector in the capital.
