A woman has died today after being hit by the Luas last night.
The incident occurred around 12.35am on St James Walk, Rialto, Dublin 8.
It happened on the Red Line Luas route.
The scene has been reopened this morning after being cornered off last night to allow for forensic examination.
Gardai are investigating the incident.
Anyone who may have witnessed the collision or who may have information is asked to contact Kilmainham Garda Station 01-666 9700, the Garda Confidential Line 1800 666 111 or any Garda Station.
If you're due to use the Red Line Luas this morning, it might be worth considering an alternative mode of transport.
According to the tram operator's social media feed, the Luas has experienced technical difficulties on the route which serves the city centre.
Following numerous updates, the latest post, which was uplaoded 20 minutes ago, confirms that the Red Line Luas is running from Tallaght/ Saggart to Smithfield only.
Tram operators have assured customers that tickets will be accepted on Dublin Bus.
Customers have wasted no time communicating their displeasure with the lack of communication in the wake of the technical disruption.
"My luas ticket was rejected to be used on the Dublin bus, awful system that you have, and I want my money back, wrote one member of the public.
"Are you making announcements at the other stops? I had to tell someone who was visually impaired! No announcements and unable to see sign," highlighted another.
The Green Line service is operating normally.
We're pretty fed up with the Luas going on strikes as it is, but if you travel on the Red Line to work or college, there's going to be further disruptions.
Luas Red Line stops from Abbey Street to The Point will be out of order throughout the summer months.
Starting from Saturday May 21, all services between these two stops will be closed until the end of July.
The rest of the line will run as normal but the service will stop again once it hits Jervis.
These closures come as the Luas Cross City works begin to take place, however, there will be a bus service in operation that will serve the closed stops during the summer months.
Also, if you're planning on using the bus service, you HAVE to have a Leap Card. For more info, visit here.
