Gardai are looking to speak with a taxi driver following reports of gunshots in Dublin’s south city centre earlier this week.

The incident occurred on Monday, August 17, at approximately 1pm at Boyne Street in Dublin 2.

Gardaí were called to a disturbance involving a number of youths and gun shots were fired.

Those involved had left the scene by the time gardai had arrived.

There were no reported injuries during the incident and no arrests made at the scene.

Gardai are now making a special appeal to a taxi driver who took a female passenger from this area at approximately 1pm that day.

The woman was brought to St. Vincent's Hospital, arriving shortly after 1.30pm, in a silver coloured Kia car.

An earlier appeal to the public was launched for witnesses to the incident and gardai have already received assistance.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Pearse Street Garda Station on 01 6669000, The Garda Confidential Line 1800 666 111 or any Garda Station.
