Description:
A fire broke out during a function in the Stardust Disco, Artane, Dublin, in the early morning of February 14th, 1981. As a result, 48 young people died, 128 received in-patient treatment and 86 were treated that night in hospital accident and emergency departments. A Tribunal of Inquiry was established to investigate and report on the Disaster. This dealt with the physical attributes of the building, events leading up to the fire, the fire itself and the functioning of the fire and other emergency services. The Tribunal was presented with details of the causes of death and of the nature of the injuries sustained by those who survived. Probable psychological consequences for those involved were also presented. This report gives background information on the geography and demographic trends of the area surrounding the Stardust. Statistics relating to deaths and hospitalisation from accidents and fires in Ireland and in young people are presented. The physical consequences of the disaster are described from official records, in greater detail than was presented to the Inquiry Tribunal.
