Gardai launch witness appeal in relation to Clondalkin killing

By Echo Reporter

Gardaí are investigating a fatal shooting that occurred at a house at Kilcronan Close, Clondalkin, at approximately 11.43pm last night (Monday 25th April 2016).

From initial investigations it appears that a lone male entered the hallway of the house at the above location and fired a number of shots fatally injuring a 37 year old man. The man was pronounced dead at the scene.


The lone male then left the scene and is believed to have ran along Kilcronan Close onto Grand Canal and then exited onto the green area towards Lock View Road. He is described as wearing all black clothing, black runners, black tracksuit and may have been wearing a balaclava; he is also described as being short in height.

A full investigation has commenced and an incident room has been established at Clondalkin Garda Station.

Investigating Gardaí are appealing for witnesses, particularly those people who were in the area prior to the incident and immediately after the shooting and who may have information or who may have seen anything unusual or suspicious to contact them at Clondalkin Garda Station on 01 666 7600 The Garda Confidential Line, 1800 666111 or any Garda Station.
