Tributes flods to the former Stardust campaigner Christine Keegan who has been reported dead.

The sad news of her death was made public on twitter through the social handle below:

 

Christine Keegan lost her daughters Mary & Martina in the tragic incident & her daughter Antoinette Keegan with families of victims and survivors of the 1981 Stardust fire during a protest march to the Attorney General’s Office to hand over 48,000 signatures they have collected calling for a new inquest into the fire.

She fought for 40 years for answers to how her daughters died in the Stardust tragedy.
