Labour TD for Dublin West, Deputy Joan Burton has said:

“My thoughts and sympathies are with the residents of Verdemont Coolmine, Blanchardstown who suffered a disastrous fire at their apartments.

“I want to salute Dublin fire brigade and all the emergency workers and the Fingal County Council staff who worked to put out the fire and to assist residents.

“There will have to be a detailed enquiry into the fire and how it spread so quickly and destroyed and damaged so many apartments and homes.

“The Minister will have to initiate this as quickly as possible and review fire safety standards and their enforcement in respect of domestic dwellings.”
