An 18-year-old man has been taken to Tallaght hospital after being struck by a Luas tram near the City West campus in Dublin.

The incident occurred just after 8pm although the extent of his injuries are unknown.

It is understood he was crossing the tracks at the time of the accident which resulted in a slight disruption to some services.
