The new Government is being called on to clarify its plans for Tralee courthouse.
Sinn Féin TD Pa Daly made the call.
Deputy Daly says there’s a risk the Courts Service will move criminal trials away from Tralee courthouse due to a difficulty swearing-in juries, amid the COVID-19 crisis.
He says moving trials away from Tralee isn’t an option as many Gardaí would possibly have to leave the county to give evidence; he adds there’d also be an additional loss of business to the town.
Deputy Daly says the finance, which has been set aside for a new courthouse, needs to be used to furbish the existing building on Ashe Street.
