Redevelopment of Courthouse sought

The Court Service is in discussion with Roscommon County Council about the future of Roscommon Courthouse, with a view to redeveloping the building to meet modern court requirements, according to Denis Naughten TD.

  “The existing courthouse building is totally inappropriate not only in terms of physical access for people with a disability but also in catering for family law cases” the Independent TD said.

  “Everybody accepts that improved court facilities are urgently required in Roscommon Town, which caters for district and circuit court sittings as well as many complex family law cases,” stated Denis Naughten.

  “The building also needs to be redeveloped to meet modern requirements for witnesses, particularly children, and it is now imperative that this project proceeds without delay.”
