Relatives of those who died in the Stardust disaster 25 years ago are demanding a new public inquiry into the incident.

Forty-eight young people lost their lives when a huge fire engulfed the Stardust nightclub in the Artane area of Dublin on Valentine's Day 1981.

The relatives are still demanding that someone be held accountable for the blaze and that the full truth about the disaster be fully revealed in public.
