Dublin Fire Brigade has paused to remember Stardust tragedy

Update 9.43am: Dublin Fire Brigade has paused to remember the Stardust Tragedy.

48 people died when a fire tore through the Artane nightclub in the early hours of Valentine's Day in 1981.

Families of survivors and victims will renew their call for a Commission of Investigation when they protest outside the Dail at midday.

They have rejected a report published late last year which found there's no justification for a new inquiry.

Earlier: Stardust survivors to renew call for independent inquiry

Survivors and families of the victims of the Stardust tragedy will renew their call today for an independent commission of inquiry.

They are holding a protest outside the Dáil at midday.

Later this evening, a silent vigil will be held to remember the 48 victims of the nightclub fire on Valentine's Day in 1981.

The families of the victims rejected a report published late last year which found no new inquiry is warranted.

Christine Keegan lost two daughters in the fire.
