The Coroners (Amendment) Act 2019 was passed by both Houses of the Oireachtas on 10 July 2019 and subsequently signed into law by the President on 23 July 2019.  

I have signed the Commencement Order for all sections of the Act with the exception of sections 8, 21, 23, 24, 25, 36 and 39(d).  This Order was laid before both Houses on 11 September 2019.  It is my intention that the remaining sections will be commenced without delay.
