Jury to deliver verdicts in Stardust inquests

Families of the 48 victims of the Stardust tragedy will gather today at the Dublin District Coroner’s Court as the long running and long anticipated inquests reach their conclusion.

The 12-person jury yesterday told the court that they had reached majority verdicts.

These will be delivered this afternoon, expected at around 2pm.

The jury has previously been told there are five verdicts open to them: accidental death, death by misadventure, unlawful killing, an open verdict and a narrative verdict.

The proceedings, which are being held in the Pillar Room on the grounds of the Rotunda Hospital in Dublin city centre began last April following a sustained campaign by relatives.

It sat for over 100 days, and heard evidence from more than 300 witnesses.

The witnesses included former staff at the night club, survivors, emergency responders and fire experts.

Forty-eight people, aged 16-27, died in the St Valentines Day disaster, 43 years ago.
