Man shot and dumped in national park 21.11.07

Gardaí assisted by helicopters and a dog team searched part of Glenveagh National Park yesterday for clues to the shooting of a 29 year old man.
The man, who is understood to be from Letterkenny, was shot in the stomach and dumped in the Derryveagh Mountains about 20 miles from Letterkenny.
It is believed he was attacked around 3.30am at a house in Meenaroy by up to three men.
Despite his injuries, he managed to stagger to an elderly man's remote home and raise the alarm.
He was taken to Letterkenny General Hospital where he underwent emergency surgery.
Sinn Féin Councillor Dessie McMonagle, who is a member of the Letterkenny Joint Policing Partnership, said the gun attack was "very strange and very worrying".
