“Rob” usually means that force or violence was involved in the theft; for example, shoplifting is an example of stealing, and mugging is an example of robbery.

In English, you "rob a bank" or you "steal money from a bank". To "steal a bank" would imply that you carried the bank away with you (a piggy bank, perhaps), or perhaps cheated the rightful owners out of it.

While "robbed" is sometimes used to differentiate between "stolen" and "stolen with force", even there, the point is that "rob" ans "steal" aren't interchangable.

The Irish for"rob" is "robáil".
