All civil matters before both the district and circuit courts in Donegal are to be adjourned from midnight tonight.
The cases will not be heard until the country emerges from Level 5 of the Government’s Living With Covid Plan.
District Court Judge Paul Kelly informed solicitors, Gardai and the public of the move at Falcarragh District Court today.
In the Circuit Court, non-urgent civil business will be adjourned so that resources can be deployed to support urgent matters, family law and essential criminal business.
No new criminal trials will commence and every effort will be made to finish existing trials.
Similarly, in the District Court, non-urgent civil business will be adjourned so that resources can be deployed to support family law, child care law and essential criminal business.
