A 23-year-old woman has appeared in court charged in connection with a shooting in west Dublin on Monday.

A mother, her eight-month-old baby and a teenage boy were all injured in the shooting in Mulhuddart.

Twenty-three-year-old Charlene Donovan formerly of Parslickstown Gardens, Dublin 15, appeared before Blanchardstown District Court this morning.

The court heard she is charged with the possession of a shotgun with intent to endanger life, and that she made no reply after the charge was put to her at Blanchardstown Garda Station last night..

She was remanded in custody for a bail application at a later date. The judge ordered that date should not be revealed for security reasons after he heard there are concerns there would be public order problems.
