Two shooting incidents overnight

Two more shooting incidents have taken place overnight in Limerick city as the Gardai go on full alert and brace for more of the same as feuding families pick up the pace.

In the first incident a single bullet was fired at the house on Cornmarket row. The bullet penetrated the font door in the attack which occurred around 2.30am this morning. No one was injured.

This is the same house that had a inert grenade thrown through the front window back in June. The bomb squad had to be called to remove the device. The occupant, an elderly woman, is the granny of members of a well known Weston gang. A nineteen year old was arrested after that incident.

Then later last night a number of shots were fired at a house in Crecora Avenue but no one was injured. Gardai also recovered a shotgun last night in O Malley Park.
