A man has been arrested in connection with the incident and is currently detained at Kilmainham Garda Station.

Sources say the incident may relate to a party that was held nearby but investigations are at an early stage.

A member of the garda technical bureau carried out a forensic examination of the crime scene this morning, focusing specifically on the ticket machine and shelter on the Tallaght-bound side of the stop on the Red Line.

Gardai are keeping an open mind on the reason for the incident.

A garda spokeswoman told Independent.ie: "Gardaí are investigating a serious assault that occurred at the Blackhorse Luas Stop, Inchicore. Two men have been taken to St James St Hospital with serious injuries."
