Statistics of liquor licensing applications granted in the District Court are recorded on the basis of the legal year, i.e., from 1 August to 31 July. The following is the information for the legal year ended 31 July 1990 in relation to premises for which exemptions were granted:

The foregoing applications realised court fee revenue of £1,049,620 which was remitted to the Exchequer and which will be recorded as Extra Exchequer Receipts on the Courts Vote. The applications also realised excise fee revenue of £3,673,670 which was remitted to the Revenue Commissioners.
