"These cars were stolen a month before the incident and fitted with false plates," Detective Inspector John Walsh of Tallaght Garda Station said.

"Somebody may have noticed them parked in a car park or stored at some facility and if anyone has information about these cars we’d like to hear from them."

Gardaí would like to hear from anyone who may have information about these cars.
