Stardust inquest jury to resume deliberations on Thursday

The jury in the Stardust inquests has retired for the evening and will resume deliberations for a seventh day tomorrow.

The seven women and five men have been considering their verdicts for 24 hours since they began deliberations last Wednesday.

This afternoon the jury had three questions for the coroner in relation to a questionnaire about the circumstances of the fire, which must be filled out as part of their deliberations.

The jury asked for clarification on the definition of standards that were in place at the time of the Stardust tragedy in 1981.

The jurors also wanted to know if when answering the yes/no questions if a “yes” implied “failure/breach/wrongdoing”.

Coroner Dr Myra Cullinane told the jury a formal answer will be given in the morning before deliberations resume deliberations.

The 12 jurors then retired for the evening.

In February 1981, 48 people died when a fire swept through the Artane nightclub.

These fresh inquests into the deaths began last April and sat for 122 days before the jury last week retired to consider its verdicts.
