The reopening of Buncrana Courthouse has been postponed until September.
It had been hoped the building would begin operating again as a district court next month.
It has been closed since the start of the Covid pandemic and hearings have been held at Letterkenny Courthouse since.
HOwever, a spokesperson for the court service has now explained the reason why the reopening date has been put back to September.
The spokesperson said “It had been hoped that we would be in a position to re-open the Buncrana Courthouse for June 2022, but after discussions with Courts Service headquarters the re-opening date has been put back until September 2022, the main reason being that a large number of Garda summonses have been issues for June and July directing people to attend at the Courthouse Letterkenny, so to avoid confusion the decision has been made to re-open in September.”
