SERVICES ON the Luas red line in Dublin remain disrupted this morning following a fire in the city centre on St Patrick’s Day.

Trams on the red line, which runs between the docklands and Tallaght/Saggart, have been hampered by the fire on Saturday morning, at a derelict property on the corner of Queen Street and Benburb Street, close to the Smithfield Luas stop.

The events meant that the overhead power lines used to power the trams have been turned off, to facilitate the demolition of adjacent buildings.

The disruption means there are no services running between Heuston and the city centre, with services only running from Heuston outbound to Tallaght and Saggart.

Services will also be running less frequently, with trams every 7-10 minutes during peak times and 15-20 minutes during quieter periods.

Luas passengers are advised to leave extra time for their journeys, and that tickets remain valid for appropriate Dublin Bus services. Further updates will be available throughout the day at the Luas website and from the @Luas twitter account.

Green line services remain fully operational this morning.
