The Irish Daily Mail has revealed that the notices have been issued this year and remain active on the buildings which are deemed to be potentially dangerous.

The warnings come to light following the tragedy at Grenfell Tower in London, where 79 people lost their lives and many others remain in hospital with serious injuries.

It's understood that the Dublin Fire Brigade issued the warnings to the Dublin apartments this year after marking them as "potentially dangerous".

Different reasons for fire safety notices being issued include failure to install smoke alarms, to far more serious breaches.
