"Additional resources have been deployed to the area and we expect the situation to ease shortly.

"We sincerely apologise for the inconvenience. Our teams are working hard to help you on your way."

Earlier this summer, Dublin Airport had warned of the possibility of delays due to additional documentation required for travel and Covid-19 health measures.
