Two brothers have been shot dead in west Dublin.

Paul and Kenneth Corbally, who were 35 and 32 and both convicted criminals, were shot dead in a car on the Neilstown Road, Ronanstown.

A teenage boy in the vehicle was also shot, but his injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.

The shooting happened at about 2000 BST on Monday. A car believed to have been used in the attack was found burned out in the Foxborough estate.

It was fitted with false registration plates and a taxi plate.

It is understood detectives are trying to establish if the attack was connected to a pub brawl between two gangs last September during which a man was killed.
