Gardaí appeal for witnesses after shots fired at a house in Cork

GARDAÍ HAVE appealed to the public for information after shots were fired at a house in Cork on Tuesday night.

The incident took place at approximately 11.45pm on St Patrick's Day, 17 March, when Gardaí were called to a house in the Avenue De Rennes area of Mahon, Co Cork, in response to a report of a number of shots fired at the front door of a house in the area.

Searches of the area were carried out both by members of the Armed Support Unit and the Southern Region Dog Unit but so far no arrests have been made.

The crime scene was preserved and a technical examination was carried out by local crime units.

No-one received any injuries during the attack, Gardaí have confirmed.


An Garda Síochána are now appealing for anyone who may have any information or who may have witnesses the shooting to come forward, particularly anyone who may have video or mobile phone footage from the areas at the time of the incident.

Anyone who was in the Mahon area in the vicinity of Avenue De Renne, Lakelands Avenue, Lakelands Crescent, Loughman Road, Ringmahon Road, Kinsale Road Roundabout or Tory Top Road between the times of 11pm and 12.30am on the night in question have been asked to contact Gardaí at Blackrock Garda Station on 021 453 6690.
