The Taoiseach Bertie Ahern has promised that the Department of Justice will examine any new evidence it receives in relation to the Stardust tragedy 25 years ago.

Mr Ahern told the Dáil today that the Government was prepared to investigate any fresh evidence about the fire that killed 48 people at the Stardust nightclub in the Artane area of Dublin in 1981.

He also said it would consider using DNA tests to identify the four victims who could not be identified at the time.

His promise follows a television documentary last night which included new scientific analysis relating to the tragedy.
