A manhunt is under way for a crazed gunman who opened fire in a south Dublin pub this morning before shooting a door-man at the venue.

Gardai wish to speak with any taxi driver who may have picked up a lone man on Sallynoggin Road at around 1am.

The incident unfolded at the Sallynoggin Inn at around 1am when the gunman fired a shot at a number of people who were dancing in the pub.

No-one was injured in this incident and the gunman left the pub but as he walked out, he fired back at the premises and a doorman was hit.

The doorman who is aged 45 and originally from Co Carlow was taken to St Vincent's University Hospital. His injuries are not life-threatening.

No arrests have yet been made in the case which is being investigated by Dun Laoghaire gardai.

Gardaí are appealing for witnesses.  They are particularly appealing for any taxi driver who picked up a lone man on Sallynoggin Road and drove in the direction of Rochestown Avenue.
