Dáil Éireann - Private Members Business
Wednesday 25 January 2017

113. “That Dáil Éireann:

notes that, 35 years following the Stardust tragedy in which 48 people died and 214 people were injured, families, relatives and victims of the tragedy have never received full and complete answers as to what occurred on the night of 14th February, 1981;

further notes that:

 — the Stardust Relatives’ and Victims Committee have continually attempted to liaise with the Department of Justice and Equality and the Taoiseach regarding misgivings around previous investigations; and

—  the Government have repeatedly called for new evidence yet have refused to meet with the Stardust Relatives’ and Victims Committee regarding the new and updated evidence they have uncovered since reviewing Judge Keane’s Report of the Tribunal of Inquiry on the fire at the Stardust, Artane, Dublin in 2006; and

calls on the Government to immediately establish a Commission of Investigation into the Stardust Tragedy of 1981.” — Thomas P. Broughan, Catherine Connolly, Clare Daly, Joan Collins, Mick Wallace, Thomas Pringle, Richard Boyd Barrett, Gino Kenny, Bríd Smith, Mick Barry, Paul Murphy, Ruth Coppinger.
