More than €10,000 has been raised for a Ukrainian couple who were robbed after reaching Dublin.

The pair set up a GoFundMe page after their car was broken into and their belongings stolen.

Refugees Anass and Olena, who fled Ukraine after the war started, have been in Ireland for almost two weeks.

They've been staying at the Travelodge in Ballymun but yesterday the window of their car was smashed in.

The couple says most of their belongings, that they loaded up when they left Kyiv under the sound of bombings, were taken.

They're asking people to help fund repairs to the car and replace what they lost - including clothes, shoes, a laptop and tablet.

This is the link to their GoFundMe page.
