At around 8.50am on Monday the 14th of August at Junction 19 a woman pulled her vehicle in to a lay-by and another wine coloured car with a 141 reg was pulled in also. There were two occupants in the second car.

When the woman pulled off again, the vehicle followed her and some distance away it began to flash the lights at her and indicated at her to pull in.

Just before the Newtownmountkennedy junction she was approached by one of the individuals who told her there was a problem with her car before demanding her purse. He took a sum of money before driving off northbound on the M11.

Garda Declan Lynch has appealed for anyone with information to come forward
