The 41-year-old man had just left the gym in a local hotel when he was shot.

A man in his 40s has been seriously injured in a suspected gangland shooting in Kilmainham in Dublin.

It's understood the victim has previously been targeted in a shooting and survived.

The 41-year-old man had just left the gym in a local hotel when he was shot several times as he sat in his car in the underground carpark.

The car park is opposite Kilmainham Jail, which was busy with tourists and visiting school children when the incident happened.

The man was then brought to the nearby St James' Hospital where he is said to be in a serious condition and receiving treatment for his injuries.

A large amount of Gardaí remain at the scene. No arrests have yet been made and Gardaí are appealing for witnesses.

An incident room has been set up at Kilmainham Garda Station.

Any road users who have camera footage, including dashcam, and were travelling on the South Circular Road in the Kilmainham area this morning, June 24th, are asked to make the footage available to Gardaí.
