The men are all believed to have taken yellow speckled "Rolex" ecstasy tablets.

The party took place at a flat in the Thornhill Court area of Twinbrook on Friday evening.

A 41-year-old, named locally as Gerard Mulholland, was pronounced dead at the scene by emergency services. He was a successful DJ in the area.

Four men were taken to the Royal Victoria Hospital in Belfast for treatment after falling ill. Two of them remain in a stable condition, while two others have been released from hospital.

Detectives are investigating reports that yellow ecstasy type tablets, known as "speckled Rolex", may have been taken by the men during the house party.

Officers have urged anyone in possession of the pills not to take them, saying the pills should be disposed of "immediately and safely".

Gerard and I were in the same class in school for quite a few years, we both grew up around the corner from each other. I remeber that Gerard was very close to his family and was a very down to earth and affablie guy. Gerard was always trying to better himself and had spent some time in America in pursuit of a different way of life but returned home to Belfast were he tryed new ventures and could be close to family and friends. I have fond memories off Gerards company and remember both of us laughing alot as children as we both shared the same quirkey outlook on life. Rest in peace Gerard untill we all meet again.
