Stardust jury in 10th day of deliberations


The jury in the Stardust inquests has begun its 10th day of deliberations.

Coroner Dr Myra Cullinane told the jurors this morning she would call them back into the courtroom before lunch to inquire into the progress they are making.

The 12-person jury, made up of seven women and five men, initially retired to consider their verdicts on Wednesday 3 April.

The jurors have been deliberating, in total, for around 36 hours.

In all, these fresh inquests at the Dublin City Coroner’s Court sat for 122 days and heard testimony from 370 witnesses.

They got under way last April after a direction from the Attorney General who said that there had been an insufficiency of inquiry at the original inquests which were held in 1982.

The move followed a sustained campaign by the families.

In her charge to the jury last month, the coroner told the jury that there were five verdicts open to them – accidental death, death by misadventure, unlawful killing, an open verdict or a narrative verdict.
