A Committee - at work!

You hear about Oireachtas Committees, you read about Oireachtas Committees - now here’s your chance to see an Oireachtas Committee in operation.

On Tuesday, members of the Oireachtas Committee on Justice, Equality, Defence and Women’s Rights left the cosy confines of Leinster House and ventured out into the big bad world.

The purpose of the outing was to see Ireland’s new criminal courts complex beside the Phoenix Park.

The new 23,000 square metre complex houses 22 courtrooms and will be the new home to the Court of Criminal Appeal, Special Criminal Court, Central Criminal Court as well as the District Courts.
