Gardai in Cork are investigating a shooting incident in the City last night.

A forensic examination will be carried out later today after a man was injured during the incident.

Andrea Gilligan reports;

It's believed the man was with a group of people drinking on a green area at the bottom of the Fair Field in Fairhill on the city's northside when a row broke out around at 11.30pm

It's understood one of the parties to the row returned with a firearm and fired a shot which struck the injured party - who is from the area but who had not been involved in the row.

The man was rushed by ambulance to Cork University Hospital where he underwent emergeny surgery but his injuries are not life-threatening.

Gardai were called and cordoned off the scene - which is at the back of Bride Valley View - and garda technical experts are beginning a forensic examination this morning.

Gardai have appealed to anyone who may have been in the area and witnessed anything to contact them at Gurranebraher Garda Station on 021-494 6200
