Denis Naughten TD has received confirmation from the Minister for Justice and Equality Charlie Flanagan, TD that the Courts Service is actively seeking an alternative location in Roscommon Town for the duration of refurbishment works to the courthouse.
The Roscommon-Galway TD previously met with Minister Flanagan on the issue and proposed a number of alternative locations to him that could accommodate the Courts Service in the town.
“Minister Flanagan has informed me that he is meeting with the Courts Service (today, Thursday) on this issue and confirmed that he will be updated on possible alternative locations. I am hopeful there will be progress on the retention of the courts in Roscommon town as a result.
“The refurbishment of the courthouse is urgently needed, and this is an issue that I had prioritised during my time in government. I also met with Minister Kevin ‘Boxer’ Moran recently regarding the refurbishment works and the timescale for completion of this substantial project”.
