Frustrated customers were unable to pay for their purchases by electronic means at one of the fashion retailer's flagship stores on O'Connell Street in Dublin.

The technical glitch hit the card payment system just as the lunchtime rush was building.

Electronic point of sale machines were inoperable for some time, meaning that customers only option was to pay by cash.

Penneys told that "the issue was a minor technical one and has now been resolved".

The fashion outlet currently has 4,500 employees in Ireland and operates 257 stores worldwide
