Updated: Tuesday 8th January 2013, 1pm

IS Services would once more like to apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Since approximately 5.15pm data network services in the East End of College have been coming back online. Access to the staff email service has also been fully restored.
Currently the only major areas with no data network access appear to be Dartry, Apollo House and St. Patrick's Hospital and possibly some other off-campus links.
Following the successful corrective action to restore data network services we are now looking into the root cause in order to prevent any possible recurrance. This alert will be updated once we have a clearer indication of the underlying issue.
