Circuit court sittings - update
For the duration of the refurbishment of Mullingar Courthouse, the remaining Westmeath Circuit civil and family law sittings will be held in Athlone Courthouse with effect from the commencement of the Easter Sittings 2016.
Athlone District Court sits on the first four Wednesdays of each month and this will continue while the circuit civil and family law sittings take place in Athlone Courthouse.
Therefore, the Circuit Court will sit in St. Loman's Mullingar GAA Club, Delvin Road, Mullingar on the Wednesday of each of the weeks that it is scheduled for Westmeath.
All criminal district court appeals for Athlone will now be listed before Judge Johnson in Tullamore along with the Mullingar Appeals.
Therefore any district court appeals being lodged in Mullingar Court Office in respect of Athlone matters will now be listed for the Mullingar Circuit (criminal) sittings in Tullamore Courthouse.
