ONE of three innocent women injured by gunfire during a botched gangland hit has spoken of her terror.
The three young partygoers were caught in indiscriminate gunfire during the attempted murder of convicted drug dealer Greg Lynch outside a pub.
Pauline Lynch (34) is back at her home in Ranelagh after she was shot in the right leg at Hanlon's pub on the old Cabra Road on Sunday morning.
"We were just at the wrong place at the wrong time," Ms Lynch said.
She and two other victims – Lauren O'Brien (19) and Sinead Carey (28) – had been at a 21st birthday party at the pub when a gunman approached at around 2.30am while they were standing outside the bar.
The gunman, who was wearing a balaclava, opened fire at criminal Greg Lynch, hitting him in the face.
He then ran to a waiting BMW and continued firing back towards the pub as he ran, hitting the three women as he fled.
Fighting back tears, Ms Lynch said that she is "in agony". She spoke about the moment she was shot outside the pub.
Asked how she is feeling, she replied: "I only took the painkiller now and I'm just in agony with it at the moment."
Another gun victim, Ms O'Brien, said she did not wish to discuss the incident.
"I'm grand but I don't want to say anything about it," she said.
Meanwhile, Sinead Carey remains in hospital after suffering a severe injury to the upper thigh. Friends sent messages of support to her Facebook account yesterday.
The gunman fired on the crowd gathered outside the bar as he fled the scene.
Greg Lynch remains in hospital after he was shot in the head. Gardai suspect that Lynch was shot by the same Coolock gang who murdered Real IRA kingpin Alan Ryan.
A source explained: "Gardai are certain that Lynch was betrayed by someone inside the pub and that text messages were provided to the gunman and his accomplice."
The stolen BMW was recovered partially burnt out in Crumlin on Sunday.
