Emergency services were called to Shancastle Park in Clondalkin shortly after 11pm last night.

They found a young man with a gun shot wound to the head and treated him at the scene.

He was taken to Connolly hospital where he remains in a serious condition.

In a separate and unrelated incident a man in his late teens was shot in the abdomen, after shots were fired into a house at Barnwell Drive in Ballymun.
