Two men have appeared before Dublin District Court charged with the attempted murder of a teenager on Eugene Street in Dublin on 24 February.

The teenager cannot be identified because he is a minor. 

29-year-old Stephen Mulvey and 25-year-old Jamie Berry, both with addresses at Leo Fitzgerald house, Dublin 2, were both arrested and charged in connection with the shooting.

Garda Mark Dennehy told Judge Bernadette Owens that Mr Mulvey, who is unemployed, made no reply when he arrested him at 19.56pm yesterday evening at Kevin Street Garda Station.

His solicitor Niall O'Connor said an application for bail will be made for his client in due course. Mr Mulvey was remanded in custody to appear at Cloverhill District Court on Friday 9 April by video link.

Meanwhile, Garda Richard Pender told the court that Jamie Berry, who is also unemployed, was arrested and charged at 19.43pm last evening at Kevin Street Garda station.

The court heard that an application for bail will also made for Mr Berry in due course.  

Mr Berry has been remanded in custody until the next Friday 9 April where he will appear at Cloverhill District Court by video link.

Gardaí informed the court that the injured party was a juvenile and Judge Owens said there were reporting restrictions in relation to the boy's identity being published.

She noted from gardaí that there was no connection between the injured party and the defendants and she said there was no prohibition on the two accused men being identified.

Mr Mulvey and Mr Berry were among five people who were arrested last Wednesday 31 March by gardaí from Kevin Street Garda Station in Dublin 8 who are investigating the shooting.

The other three people - two men in their 20s and a juvenile - who were also arrested were all released without charge and a file will now be prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions.

Gardaí have said investigations are ongoing.
