Niamh De Brún has shared her relief that her car has been returned after it was stolen from her home earlier this year.
The new mam explained the “absolutely terrifying” experience that saw thieves break into her house to steal her car keys.
In September, Niamh took to Instagram to explain that her Range Rover Evoque was taken from outside her home in Limerick at the end of September.
She went on to say that her mother’s black BMW was also stolen.
This week, she explained how she was very lucky to get her vehicle back after someone spotted it in East Clare and messaged the influencer.
“I very fortunately got my jeep back. Absolutely perfect. No damage done to it whatsoever. So I am incredibly lucky. I thought that it was gone, that it was going to be taken apart for pieces and sold,” she said on social media.
“It was put back to East Clare, it was someone in the East Clare Community Facebook group that was out walking his dog and it was there reversed into his space outside his house.
“So I am so, so lucky! The power of social media,” she said before adding that her mother’s car was unfortunately not found.
She went on to say that the thieves broke into her house while she and her husband TJ Reid and their baby, Harper slept upstairs.
“I obviously never mentioned how they got the keys and that. So what they did was they broke into the house while we slept upstairs.
“Harper was in her own room which absolutely terrifies me. She often wakes up during the night so if I was in and out to her or like just the fact that somebody was in the house while we were all asleep upstairs it’s just it gives you shivers.
“Nothing was stopping them from coming up the stairs to see what handbags, what else they could find in the house, and as I said I’m often up in the night with Harper you could’ve bumped into someone in the hallway or on the stairs, if I was downstairs getting her bottle or glass of water or whatever.”

She went on to say that they didn’t even realise anyone had been in the house until the Gardaí came out to dust for fingerprints. She admitted that when it comes to “the safety of your child” that “you just go into overdrive”.
“Very thankful that nobody was hurt and it’s a bonus that I got my jeep back. Thank you to everyone who shared it and helped me get it back,” she added.
