One theory being examined is that the attack may be linked to a personal dispute that erupted last year between the young father and people associated with a criminal gang on Cork's southside.

It is understood several threats had been made against the young man over recent months.

Two vehicles are being examined by gardaí amid suspicions they could have been used in the attack - while CCTV security camera footage from Tivoli, Mayfield and Ballyvolane is being studied.

Garda concerns over potential retaliation were heightened by inflammatory social media postings over the past 24 hours which one garda source described as both "reckless and irresponsible."

In one social media posting, three people were identified by name as being responsible for the Dúnard attack - and they were warned that retribution would now be sought.

A video issued to Cork radio stations and described as "a revenge attack" has been dismissed as a hoax.

Detectives believe three men went to the property with two carrying out the assault while a third kept a look-out and remained with the getaway vehicles.
