AN 18-YEAR-old man is in a stable condition in Tallaght Hospital after being hit by a Luas tonight.

He was struck while crossing the tracks at around 8:30pm.

It happened between the Cheeverstown and Citywest stops on the red line.

Communications manager with Transdev, Dearbhla Brophy, told that the incident caused slight disruption to the Luas service.

We operated a full line between the point and Tallaght and we ran a bus service between Belgard Road and Saggart between 8:30 and 10pm.

This comes a day after a woman lost her life after an incident involving a car and a Luas tram in Dublin’s city centre.
