The first incident is said to have happened around 11pm on Friday night, when emergency services were called to Shancastle Park in Clondalkin.

Upon arrival, they found a young man with a gun shot wound to the head and he was initially treated at the scene, and was then taken to Connolly hospital.

The second incident - which is believed to be entirely unrelated - is reported to have occurred around 2.25am on Saturday morning, and it involved shots being fired in a house at Barnwell Drive in Ballymum.

Emergency services arrived at the house to find a man in his late teens with a gun shot to the abdomen, and he was taken to the Mater Hospital
