This car was stolen in Celbridge, Co. Kildare on the 14th February 2019.

From here, the suspects transferred to a black Opel Insignia registration number 10D1760, two persons ran from Paddocks View onto Dodsborough Road where the Opel Insignia was parked.

This vehicle travelled through Lucan village towards the N4.
