Luas services in Dublin have resumed tonight ahead of schedule, following stoppages due to Storm Ophelia.

The operating company, Transdev, had planned to restart in the morning.

However, a spokesperson said its technical operation was tested this evening and found to be working.

Full services have begun operating on both the Green and Red lines, with the last trams leaving the city centre at 12.30am.

The service had closed down because of storm damage to the roof over the technical room in the Red Cow depot, which runs the overhead cables and tram locator system.

Services from other transport providers resumed this morning on most routes, with some localised stoppages.
