There's a call out for eyewitnesses to a shooting in west Dublin earlier which has left a man in his fifties seriously hurt.

He was shot several times about ten minutes past noon at a home on Cookstown Road in Tallaght, and taken to hospital in a serious conition.

Gardaí have sealed off the scene and set up an incident room -- and want to speak with anyone in the area between a quarter to noon and a quarter past noon today.

They're asking for information on a small van found burning in Kilcarrig Close shortly after the attack

Information's also being sought on the movements of two cars seen in the Rathmill Glen area -- one black car found partially burnt, and a second silver car.

Local Fianna Fáil councillor Charlie O'Connor has urged people to help the investigation if they can.

"Both scenes are very close, adjacent to St Mark's Community School where there are young people -- hundreds of them," he said.

"That has added to the shock. From the local reaction I'm getting people are very upset about this happening in our community and I would want to appeal to people who do have information to please co-operate with the Tallaght gardaí."
