Gardai in Cork are appealing for information after a man was shot in Ballyvolane yesterday evening.

A 41-year-old man was approached by a lone gunman at around 7.40pm yesterday and shot a number of times as he was getting out of a car in the Chapelgate area of Ballyvolane on the north side of Cork City.

Gardai said it’s understood the gunman fled from the scene on foot.

The injured man was taken to Cork University Hospital where his condition is understood to be stable.

Gardai are urging anyone with any information to contact them.
