A pregnant woman was rushed to hospital after a shooting incident in Dublin yesterday evening.

It is understood that a firearm was used in an attack at around 3.40pm at a halting site in Oldcastle Park, just off the Nangor Road in Clondalkin.

Shots are believed to have been fired in the woman's direction, but she was not hit.

She has since been taken to hospital, as a precaution, according to sources, but has no serious injuries.

Nobody else was injured during the incident, according to gardaí.

A spokesman for the force said they are investigating the incident, as forensics carried out an examination at the scene last night.

An ambulance and fire unit from Dublin Fire Brigade were also rushed to the scene.

It believed that two men were involved in the attack and had fled the scene before gardaí arrived.

Gardaí have appealed for any witnesses to contact them.
