He was taken by ambulance to Tallaght Hospital and has since been transferred to Beaumont Hospital where his condition is understood to be serious.

The scene is currently preserved for a forensic examination.

No arrests have been made to date and enquiries are ongoing.

Gardaí are appealing for witnesses in particular to those who were in the vicinity of the playground at Mac Uilliam estate late last night to come forward. They are also appealing to those with video footage (including dash-cam) to make it available to them.
