Alan Graham (47) appears in court in connection with Mulhuddart shooting in March

A Limerick man has been remanded in custody after being charged with the attempted murder of a man who was shot in Mulhuddart, Dublin 15.

Lee Boylan (24) sustained multiple gunshot wounds to his upper body and neck as he sat in a van at Blakestown Road on March 6th last.

Alan Graham (47), of Davin Gardens, Cahirdavin, Limerick, was brought before judge David McHugh at Blanchardstown District Court on Friday.

Det Sgt Shane McCartan told the judge that following directions from the Director of Public Prosecutions, Mr Graham was charged with the attempted murder of Mr Boylan.


He was charged at 10.30pm on Thursday and Det Sgt McCartan said he “made no reply” when cautioned.

The judge remanded Mr Graham in custody to appear at Cloverhill District Court on Tuesday. He has not yet indicated how he will plead.

Legal aid was granted after the judge noted there was no Garda objection.

Gardaí carried out searches in Hartstown west Dublin on Monday assisted by the Armed Support Unit and members of the Defence Forces. As part of the operation, detectives also conducted searches in Limerick.
