We all know the feeling... you've had a late night and the following morning you nod off on public transport.

Most of us wake up before our stop. But this morning Aoife Kelly was enjoying her snooze on the Luas so much that she slept through her stop, and a number of other stops, from the look of things.

The 31-year-old billing analyst from Stillorgan explained: "Sure, I'd had a bit of a late night last night and was so exhausted on my way to work this morning.

"I was only on the Luas a few minutes when I nodded off... The next thing I knew there was a banging on the window and I saw a Luas maintenance guy waving at me.

"I looked around and realised I was the only person left on the Luas and we were about to go through the Luas wash in the depot.

"Thankfully the driver was still on board and was able to let me out about 15 minutes later."

Ms Kelly explained that she got into work a bit late but luckily her boss was understanding.

"Great start to my week!" she joked.
