A man has been remanded in custody after he was charged with attempted murder in connection with a shooting in Mulhuddart in Dublin.

Father-of-one, Lee Boylan, 24, from Clonsilla, Dublin was seriously injured after he sustained multiple gunshot wounds to his upper body and neck as he sat in a van at Blakestown Road on 6 March.

Gardaí arrested four men earlier this week during search operations in Dublin and Limerick.

They were detained in Blanchardstown and Finglas garda stations.

Hearing was held at Blanchardstown District Court

Alan Graham, 47, from Davin Gardens, Cahirdavin, Limerick, was brought before Judge David McHugh at Blanchardstown District Court today.

Detective Sergeant Shane McCartan told Judge McHugh that following directions from the Director of Public Prosecutions, Mr Graham was charged with the attempted murder of Mr Boylan.

Det Sgt McCartan said the defendant "made no reply" having been cautioned.

Judge McHugh remanded Mr Graham in custody to appear at Cloverhill District Court on Tuesday.

The three other men arrested earlier this week, who are in their 20s and 30s, have been released without charge.

A file will be prepared for the DPP.
