Stardust survivors mount protest at Taoiseach’s office

Survivors of the Stardust disaster and relatives of those killed in the nightclub fire are protesting outside the Taoiseach's constituency office in Dublin today.

Survivors of the Stardust disaster and relatives of those killed in the nightclub fire are protesting outside the Taoiseach's constituency office in Dublin today.

The protest is part of a renewed campaign for a proper inquiry into the blaze, which killed 48 people on Valentine's Day in 1981.

The survivors and relatives have never accepted the outcome of the original inquiry, which criticised owner Eamon Butterly, Dublin Corporation and the Department of the Environment for safety failings.

They say they have been inundated with new witness statements since the airing of a television documentary to mark the 25th anniversary of the disaster last month.
