It was a shocking and tragic incident that occurred in the late evening on Saturday in Finglas, north Dublin. A male, aged in his early 20s, was shot and killed outside a home on Barry Drive. His mother was in the house at the time when the victim was shot multiple times in the head and body.
The victim was treated by emergency personnel before being sent to Connolly Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead. The gardaí believe the fatal shooting is drug-related, as the man had links to a local family-based drug gang in Finglas. A significant number of drugs and firearms were seized by the police, and the scene has been preserved for forensic and technical examination. The coroner has also been notified.
This is the first alleged gangland murder that has happened this year, leaving friends, family, and the community in shock. It is a reminder of the challenges that our society still faces, and a call to action that we must do more to protect our citizens.
