A man in 40s has been gunned down at a pub in north Dublin.

A second man was injured in the attack in Finglas at around 7pm last night.

Two armed men wearing balaclavas entered the Jolly Toper pub on Church Street and targeted the two men who were drinking upstairs at the time.

Both victims were rushed to the Mater Hospital, but one of them died a short time later.

The second man's injuries are not believed to be life threatening.
