A woman is fighting for her life after an apparent hit-and-run incident in the capital.

The victim, in her mid-30s, was discovered at Lohunda Dale, Clonsilla, Dublin 15, at 3.40am on Sunday.

She was taken to James Connolly Memorial Hospital, Blanchardstown and later transferred to Beaumont Hospital. Her condition is described as critical. A garda spokesman said they are investigating the possibility that the woman may be the victim of a hit-and-run. 


Investigators have established that she had taken a taxi from Harcourt Street to the Lohunda area and they are attempting to identify the driver.

Gardai are appealing for witnesses or anyone with ­information, particularly those who may have been in the ­Lohunda estate/Ongar Distributor Road area between 3.15am and 4.15am on Sunday, to contact them at Blanchardstown Garda Station on 01-6667000.

Separately, four people were hospitalised after a two-car collision during rush-hour in the capital.

Service to the Luas Red Line was also disrupted after a car overturned at the junction of the Naas Road and Kylemore Road, in Bluebell.

Emergency services confirmed that they were called to the scene of the collision shortly after 5pm yesterday.

Four people were subsequently rushed to hospital but their injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.
