Irishman grabbing daughter's car (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

sedan

Here is my best explanation:

'car' is the definition.

(sedan is a kind of car)

'irishman grabbing daughter's' is the subsidiary indication.

'irishman' becomes 'sean' (I've seen this in other clues).

'grabbing' indicates putting letters inside.

'daughter' becomes 'd'.

'sean' placed around 'd' is 'sedan'.

This clue was last seen in The Guardian

(Other definitions for sedan that I've seen before include "Chair used as transport", "Saloon car (US)", "Dean's in an old conveyance", "Covered chair carried between poles", "Carried seat", "Palanquin; car", "Old carrier chair for Danes", "In cars, an alternative name for 'saloon'", "Chair on poles" and "Battle in 1940".)
