Stardust mother stages sit-in at Department of Justice

The 79-year-old mother of two victims killed in the Stardust tragedy in Dublin is staging a sit-in protest at the Department of Justice this afternoon.

Christine Keegan has said she is willing to stay there all night.

She wants the names of her two daughters to be removed from the official Coffey review and Keane report into the 1981 disaster.

Mary and Martina Keegan perished in the nightclub fire which killed 48 people in total and left 214 injured.
