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.
Red Line service update: services are currently running between Blackhorse – The Point. There is no service from Tallaght/Saggart – Blackhorse. Replacement buses are serving all effected stops and tickets are valid on Dubin Bus.
We apologise for any and all inconvenience

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.
You tweet at 6:50 when your Stewart at the square stop said there is a signal fault since last night. Plenty of time to notify people in advance and put buses on but no that would make sense @Shane_RossTD

Some passengers were left baffled.
Any replacement bus organizes or...?

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.
And the Dublin Bus driver was not aware of this and wanted to call the gards on me? 😂 Mess.

Well he done 1 lap, Square to Kingswood and removed passengers, he’s pre-booked to go to another hire. Is it difficult to understand? Are you that thick? Somebody else hired it before Luas had a tech problem. It’s not difficult. Are you simple or just messing with the masses?

The alternative bus has been gone an hour. Can you advise when the next shuttle bus is due to arrive at Tallaght?

@Luas if the luas isn't running past Blackhorse could you please advise when your shuttle bus is arriving? There are old people and children waiting in the cold for over half an hour now!
