Man in critical condition after being shot multiple times during attack in Dublin house

The shooting happened at a house on Stannaway Rd in Crumlin, and the injured man was taken to St James’s Hospital, where his condition is described as serious.

The man, who is in his early 30s, was shot a number of times while in a house. The scene has been preserved for a technical examination, and the matter is under investigation.

Gardaí are seeking more information and are appealing for anyone who was in the Sundrive Rd/Stannaway Rd area between 2am and 3am to contact Sundrive Garda Station at 01-6666600.

Those who feel they can help gardaí with their investigation can also contact the Garda Confidential line at 1800, or any Garda station.

Meanwhile, Trevor O’Neill’s father described his son’s murder in Spain last week as “senseless”.

Vinnie O’Neill spoke of his heartache at the weekend as he stared at the flowers and county football jerseys draped across the gates of his son’s home in Crumlin.

He said that the only consolation he had was that if there was a heaven, he believed that where his son was now.

“He was too good; he was too good. So he can’t go anywhere else,” he said.

“He was one of the best human beings I ever knew and just look around at the flowers left by all the neighbours.”

Gardaí had told him it was a case of mistaken identity, he said. “Trevor wouldn’t know any of those people,” he added.

“All Trevor was into was work and the kids. That was his life,” said Mr O’Neill in an interview published in a Sunday newspaper.

Mr O’Neill described his son’s killing in Majorca on Wednesday night as being “senseless”.

The father of three was shot dead while on holidays with his wife Suzanne and three children in Costa de la Cama in a case of mistaken identity.

He was shot three times in the back after being mistaken for a member of the Hutch family.

“He was the greatest young fella, and not because he was my son; he was the greatest young fella that God ever gave breath to. He was just a super human being and all I can be thankful for is 40 years of him.”

Trevor O’Neill worked as an inspector in Dublin City Council’s drainage services division where he is sadly missed by his colleagues who all thought highly of him.

Described as an energetic worker, he had a keen interest in flood relief. “He was very outgoing and very well thought of by all who worked with him,” a colleague said yesterday.
