Jury in Stardust inquests resume deliberations

The jury in the Stardust inquests has begun their fifth day of considering their verdicts.

The 12 jurors of seven women and five men resumed their deliberations at 11am.

These fresh inquests got under way last April, after the then attorney general directed they be held.

It followed a long campaign by relatives of those who died in the Stardust tragedy more than 40 years ago.

Forty-eight people, aged between 16 and 27, died when a fire ripped through the Artane nightclub in the early hours of St Valentine’s Day in 1981.

The proceedings, in front of coroner Dr Myra Cullinane, sat for a total of 122 days and heard testimony from 370 witnesses.

The hearings are taking place in the Pillar Room on the grounds of the Rotunda Hospital.
