Stardust inquests jury continues deliberation on verdicts

The jury at the Stardust inquests have begun their second day of deliberating on its verdicts.

The Dublin District Coroner’s Court, which is sitting in the Pillar Room on the grounds of the Rotunda Hospital, convened at 11am this morning.

The coroner, Dr Myra Cullinane, briefly addressed the jurors telling them she was available to them throughout the day if they had any questions that needed to be addressed.

The 12-person jury then left the courtroom to resume their deliberations.

Forty-eight people, aged between 16 and 27, lost their lives in the disaster which happened in the early hours of 14 February 1981 when a fire ripped through the Artane nightclub.

These fresh inquests into the deaths, which began last April, were established after the then Attorney General, Seamus Woulfe, directed they take place. It followed a lengthy campaign by families of the victims.

In all, the inquests have sat for 122 days and heard testimony from over 370 witnesses.

The coroner has previously told the jurors that five potential verdicts are available: accidental death, death by misadventure, unlawful killing, an open verdict or a narrative verdict.
