Gardai are appealing for witnesses to a shooting, which occurred in Dublin in January.

A number of shots were fired at a house in Stoneybatter on January 22 earlier this year. 

Several children were in the house at Blackhorse Grove when the gunman fired the shots, Gardai said. 

"Thankfully nobody was injured which does not take away from the experience suffered by the families within," a Garda spokesperson said. 

Detectives are working on establishing the circumstances surrounding the shooting but are appealing for any witnesses or people with information that may assist with the investigation. 

Garda are asking members of the public if they have any information regarding this incident to contact the Bridewell Garda Station at 01 666 8200.

They added that any information received will be treated with 'sensitivity'.
