According to new reports it is understood that a new file has been sent to the Director of Public Prosecutions which outlines further details of the 1981 Stardust nightclub fire that tragically killed 48 people.
Gardaí say the file has been sent to the DPP after a researcher for the victims families Geraldine Foy, claimed that there is evidence that proves that five of the young people killed in the tragedy were already dead before the alarm was raised about a fire in the seating area.
Ms Foy, claims there is substantial evidence that proves five young men tragically lost their lives from smoke inhalation 12 meters away from the seat fire, which contradicts when the fire actually started. The latest file to be sent to the DPP, comes after another file was sent last August which disputed evidence that a 999 call was made from outside the Stardust by a resident who saw a fire on the roof.
Investigator’s said the call came at the exact same time when a 999 call was made from inside the nightclub about the seat fire. The victims families believe the fire originally started in a storeroom and have disputed the layout of the building given to the original tribunal.
The file sent last August alleged perjury at the tribunal but the DPP decided not to take any further action.
