The ten people who died in a fire in Carrickmines in Dublin yesterday have not been named officially by the gardaí, but have been identified locally and on social media. 

They are Willie Lynch and Tara Gilbert and daughters Kelsey and Jodie, Thomas and Sylvia Connors and their children Jim, Christy and six-month old Mary.

39-year-old Jimmy Lynch, a brother of Willie, also died in the fire.  

Post-mortem examinations of the remains were carried out at Tallaght Hospital this afternoon by assistant state pathologist Margeret Bolster.

It is expected it will be some days before the remains are officially identified using DNA and dental records.

Crowds gathered today to offer their condolences to relatives and friends of those who lost their lives in the fire, described by Taoiseach Enda Kenny as an "unspeakable tragedy."

The alarm was raised at 4.24am yesterday with six units of the Dublin Fire Brigade on the scene and a number of paramedics and ambulances.

A member of the Dublin Fire Service said that it seemed the fire broke out in a prefab in the halting site, which quickly spread to surrounding units.

Gardaí are investigating the cause of the blaze but early indications are that it was not a criminal act and it is not being treated as suspicious.

It is understood the scene was difficult to examine due to the extensive damage caused by the blaze and the number of people caught up in it.

The Southside Travellers Action Group centre in Sandyford was open again today to provide support for those affected by the tragedy.

A spokesperson for the group said it wanted to provide a focal point for people, and a base for those who were travelling from different parts of the country.

Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council has been organising accommodation for the 14 people left homeless by the fire.

The halting site on Glenamuck Road South accommodated up to half a dozen caravans and one or two permanent residential structures.
