It sat in Cork a number of years ago and the fact that this is occurring at the same time the new complex is opening is unique.”It is expected that once the court complex becomes fully operational, all criminal cases before the Circuit and District courts will be heard at the Mulgrave Street premises and the Central Criminal Court is also expected to sit there to hear the most serious of offences.The present District Court building at City Hall is likely to be repurposed by Limerick City and County Council ahead of the 2019 local elections.See more Limerick news here WhatsApplast_img read more
