On 5th August the Courts Service will officially launch its new website and our existing, but fast aging site will be ushered into retirement. Our new website, which is currently accessible at https://www.courts.ie will become the new ‘courts.ie’ on that date and the old one will no longer be available. There may be some downtime to allow this change to happen and this may include the Legal Diary. The Legal Diary contains lists of cases in the Supreme Court, the Court of Appeal, the High Court, the Central Criminal Court and the Circuit Courts. Lists of cases in the District Court are available from the relevant District Court Office
Members of the public are welcome to enter all courts except those displaying the 'in camera' sign.

Reading court lists:
In general, the layout of court lists is as follows;
List number Case (file) number Plaintiff v Defendant : Plaintiff's solicitor \ Defendant's solicitor.
The list number indicates the order of priority for hearing on the court date.
Printing court lists:
When you locate the list you require, you may print a plain copy of the relevant list.
Changes and cancellations:
You may also check the notices in the Terms & Sittings section of the website for any changes of court venues or of scheduled sitting dates.
A 'callover' is a sitting at which pending cases are called over in court to determine if they are ready to proceed. Cases which are ready to proceed are assigned dates - insofar as dates are available. Callover lists are identified by a subtitle 'callover'.
Court lists which have been published some weeks in advance of a sitting date are often subject to change nearer to that sitting date. In such cases, the published list will be amended closer to the sitting date. The date of updating will be given at the top of the list.
Therefore, it is important that you check the court list again nearer to the court date.
District Court lists are available from the relevant District Court Office.
