The speed at which a fire engulfed a temporary halting site in Carrickmines at the weekend, leading to the deaths of 10 people, means serious questions need to be asked about the standard of Traveller accommodation.
While the cause of the fire that swept through prefabricated buildings in the early hours of Saturday morning is still under investigation, it is clear that those trapped inside on that awful night stood no chance.
Assistant chief fire officer with Dublin Fire Brigade Denis Keeley told 'Morning Ireland' yesterday that it was the most devastating fire he had witnessed in his 30-year career.
