Dublin footballer John Small has appealed for help on Twitter after his car was broken into in Drumcondra last night. The incident comes after Small's inter-county teammate Michael Darragh MacAuley's Subaru Forrester was stolen a fortnight ago. 

Thankfully for McAuley, his vehicle was retrieved with the midfielder posting 'Thank you to the good people (and the bad people) of Twitterland. I have the car back with most of the items still inside.'

Small confirmed with the latest incident with the below image, captioned: 'My car was broken into outside my home in Drumcondra last night. They took some money & personal belongings which were important to me. If anyone saw anything suspicious please let me know.'

The 26-year-old plays with Ballymun Kickhams and won his fourth All-Ireland medal when Dublin defeated Kerry last month.
