Judge O’Hagan said he appreciated the conditions for many people attending the court were uncomfortable.He said local veteran solicitor Paudge Dorrian was exhausted pleading for the facilities to be improved.“There is the promise of a new courthouse in the future but that’s as far as it goes,” he said.Judge O’Hagan spoke as barristers, solicitors, prison officers, Gardai, members of the public, members of the HSE and other court officers jostled for space at yesterday’s opening day of the current Circuit Court sitting.That position will be made equally as uncomfortable today when more than 100 members of the public turn up for jury duty selection.JUDGE APOLOGISES TO PUBLIC OVER CRAMPED COURTHOUSE was last modified: October 29th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:criticalJUdge John O’HaganLetterkenny Circuit Courtspacelast_img read more
