Therefore court hearings could not continue at the courthouse in the short term.The Courts Service has advised that a review is currently being carried out and that, in the short term, the Court will sit in Buncrana Courthouse. I understand that the next District Court for Carndonagh will sit in Buncrana Courthouse on 19 March 2019 at 10.30 am.
