Written answers (Question to Public)

Carndonagh Courthouse is not in the ownership of the Commissioners of Public Works.

The Court Services Act, 1998 provided for the transfer of property in the ownership of the Commissioners of Public Works in Ireland to be transferred to the Courts Service on its establishment.

All matters relating to the refurbishment of Carndonagh courthouse should be addressed to the Courts Service.
