A MAN WAS hit by a Luas tram in Dublin city centre today.

It happened at the Luas red line between Smithfield and the Four Courts at around 1:45pm.

The pedestrian, who is believed to be in his mid to late 30s, was taken to the Mater Hospital with a suspected broken arm.

A source told TheJournal.ie that the pedestrian ‘didn’t go under the Luas’.

He was pinned though and got a fair old wallop on his head.

He was conscious and talking when he was taken to hospital.

Gardaí are now investigating.
