Trams are now running again on the full Luas Red Line after being stopped for around eight hours today.

Services were shut down west of the Blackhorse stop because of a "technical fault".

Luas operator Transdev says "alternative buses" are serving the stops, and Dublin Bus is accepting tram tickets.

"We apologise for any and all inconvenience," it said in a tweet.

Transdev announced it was suspending all services on the Red Line shortly after the first tram was scheduled on the line at 6.30am this morning.

Later, it said services had been restored between Blackhorse and the Point.

Trams started running the full route shortly before 3pm today, with some delays.

Some passengers were left baffled.

Others said they had difficulty convincing Dublin Bus drivers to accept tram tickets early in the day -- and that the replacement bus service put in place by Transdev was sparse.
