The District Court is the lowest court in the Irish court system. It is regulated by the President of the District Court and 64 District Court Judges.

The District Court is organised on a regional basis. There are 23 District Court Districts, as well as the Dublin Metropolitan District. Each District is divided into District Court areas and has one or more judges permanently assigned to it.

The District Court is a court of local and limited jurisdiction. This means it can only make orders or decisions on certain types of civil law and criminal law cases.

We attend District Courts nationwide, including the following:

  • Harristown District Court (at Castlerea Prison)

  • Ballaghaderreen District Court

The above is not an exhaustive list.
