An Etihad Airways Airbus A330-200, registration A6-EYU performing flight EY-41 from Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates) to Dublin (Ireland), performed a normal final approach to Dublin's runway 28, ATC vectored other aircraft for the approach to runway 28, the next approach had already established on the localizer. Tower attempted to get a departure out between the Etihad and the next arrival and instructed the departure to line up runway 28 and wait as soon as the Etihad had flown past. The aircraft touched down and rolled out, tower instructed to vacate at the next exit, a few seconds later tower instructed to expedite vacating the runway, another aircraft was already lined up. The Etihad crew reported they had a hydraulic problem and problems with the braking. Tower attemtped to slow the next arrival, however, the arrival was already at final approach speed and was therefore instructed to go around. The Etihad crew reported they had lost the brakes and nose wheel steering during the last few meters of roll out, they were trying to restore the hydraulic system, they were unable to move. Tower requested the departure which had already lined up for departure to vacate the runway via taxiway E3 (770 meters/2500 feet down the runway) and subsequently told the crew, their flight plan had expired querying whether tower should hold the flight plan open, the crew requested to keep the flight plan open. Emergency services responded. The crew reported they lost the green hydraulic system during the roll out which lost brakes and nose wheel steering. A runway inspection found some contamination on runway 28 past the intersection with taxiway E6 (1800 meters/6000 feet down the runway).

The runway was closed for about an hour until the aircraft could be towed off the runway and the contamination was cleaned off the runway.
