 On 14 February 1981 the lives of 48 young people were taken in the horrific fire which engulfed the Stardust, a large music and dance venue in Artane on Dublin's northside. Selina McDermott, who lost two brothers and a sister, and Jimmy Fitzpatrick who was seriously injured, talk to Mícheál Mac Donncha about the long campaign of the bereaved and the survivors for justice and truth. As the resumed inquest prepares to re-convene in a new venue they speak of their hopes for the outcome.
