Mystery surrounds Dowth shooting

Mystery still surrounds the shooting of a 39 year old Slane man, who was seriously injured in an incident at Dowth on Sunday night.
He underwent surgery on Monday for a serious leg injury and has been too ill to be talk to gardai since the incident.
The man was believed to have been returning home, when he was shot a number of times in the upper body and his leg.
The injured man was able to contact emergency services himself and he was taken to Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital in Drogheda where he is currently being treated for his injuries which are not thought to be life threatening.
The scene of the shooting was preserved for a time for a Garda technical examination.
The incident occurred at approximately 9.45pm on Sunday.
The victim was from Slane and was not known to gardai.
The Gardai have appealed to anyone who was in the Dowth area between 9 and 10pm on Sunday evening, or even earlier, who may have seen or heard anything unusual to come forward.
They are asked to contact Navan Garda Station on (046) 907 9930 or the Garda Confidential Line 1800 666 111.
