A protest is taking place in the Dublin suburb of Artane this morning against the opening of a pub adjacent to the site of the Stardust nightclub fire.

About 100 people are protesting against the re-opening of the Sliver Swan pub which was destroyed in the blaze that killed 48 young people on Valentine’s Day 25 years ago.

The pub was originally due to open on Wednesday but was postponed by angry protests from the families of Stardust victims.
