Families and survivors of the Stardust tragedy will hold a protest outside the Department of Justice today over the lack of a venue for a fresh inquest.

It comes as the lease for the current space at the RDS ends next month.

48 people died and 214 others were injured after a fire broke out at the Valentine's disco in Artane in February 1981.

Chair of the Stardust Victims Committee, Antoinette Keegan, lost her two sisters in the blaze.

She says they will demonstrate every day until they see progress;

"Tomorrow then we'll do the same thing again and we'll carry on again next week if we have to, we have waited long enough for this."

She says anxiety and pressure are being put on families and causing untold stress.
