Flights in and out of Dublin were cancelled this morning due to an Irish Aviation Authority radar issue.
Data from the flight tracking website, Flight Radar 24 showed flights due to take off as still on the runway and arriving flights holding off landing.
According to several reports, flights from/to Dublin Airport (DUB) are currently affected by a radar issue; no departures at the moment, some arriving flights are holding https://t.co/aCnCkKodhL pic.twitter.com/VwxkrHlg3Q

The issue has been resolved, but Dublin Airport has said that there will be knock-on delays.
This issue has now been resolved by @IAApress & flight operations have resumed. There will be knock-on delays due to the system outage.

People were not happy about it and took to Twitter to express their annoyance.

Just been given a slot to get airborne - speculative and the very best case scenario (unlikely to happen)
Take off 12:12 to land at 1 (earliest people can land)
By which point I will have spent a minimum of 5 hours on a plane, 4 of which are stationary.#DublinAirport
