In a separate incident, the window of a car was smashed in the same estate and property was taken from inside.

An appeal for CCTV footage of this incident has been issued by the resident who was the victim of the robbery while she slept.

Natalie Walsh, a makeup artist, took to social media to highlight the brazen theft of her valuable work materials and equipment, her brushes and make-up, as well as her purse.

Natalie wrote on social media: “To think that I can’t even park my car outside my own house without my car been robbed.

Ms Walsh appealed to anyone in the area with camera footage to contact her.

“If anyone around Glenheights park has cameras near Daybreak or Glenheights road /Glenheights park can you please get onto me.” 

On average, over €340,000 worth of property is stolen from vehicles each year, according to Gardaí.
