The child's football club are appealing for any witnesses.
A popular football club in Dublin 15 has appealed for witnesses after a shocking incident in which an under 12 player was struck by a car.
The incident happened at around 6.30pm last night at the junction of Corduff and Castlecurragh junction, and Corduff FC are appealing for information.
A white Ford Sedan-type car was involved, and it's understood to have broken a red light at the junction when it struck the child.
Thankfully, he managed to escape without injury according to the club.
But there are major concerns locally about the junction, which has been labelled "notorious".
