Tomorrow marks the 39th anniversary of the Stardust nightclub tragedy on Valentine's Day 1981.

The fire claimed the lives of 48 people, and 214 others were injured.

Game of Thrones actor Liam Cunningham grew up nearby. His sister was there that night, and he searched the hospitals for her afterwards.

He joined us on The Last Word to talk about his memories of the night, the trauma that still lingers for survivors and families, and their ongoing search for justice.
