Lismore District Court is to sit in Dungarvan from early May this year until further order, according to the Courts Service.

Concerns were raised this week regarding the potential loss of Lismore Courthouse to the town, with news from the Courts Service that the facility is to be transferred to Dungarvan from May 3 ‘until further order’.
