Circuit Court Judge John O’Hagan made his comments at Letterkenny Circuit Court this morning.
Judge O’Hagan addressed a packed courthouse as people arrived in court to see if their cases were going ahead or not.
The judge said he had been sitting at Letterkenny Circuit Court for six years and “not much has happened.”
He said he will work hard to bring down the number of cases on the list.
“I don’t know what the answer is,” said Judge O’Hagan.
