A man has been killed after being hit by a Luas tram in Tallaght last night.

Gardai attended the scene of a collision between the pedestrian and the Luas near the Kingswood red line stop at approximately 11.55pm.

The man’s body was removed to the city morgue for post mortem.

The incident happened on a bend in the track between the Red Cow stop and the Kingswood stop, around 30 metres from the Kingswood stop.

Local sources told Independent.ie that while the identity of the victim is not known yet it is believed he is not originally from Ireland.

Investigations are ongoing.

Last month a mother-of-five was tragically killed by a Luas tram while crossing between the Belgard and Tallaght Hospital stops.
