In a statement, Luas said that staff safety was their priority and that service was being pulled for a number of reasons.
It said: “Electricity in the overhead power lines must be turned off and cannot be turned on until a visual inspection is undertaken.”
“A technical exception will be done later this evening.”
It is expected that services will resume as normal from Tuesday morning.
