Appointments to the Circuit Court

 

At its meeting yesterday, the Government nominated Mr John Aylmer, SC for appointment by the President to the Circuit Court.

The vacancy in the Circuit Court arises from the recent sad death of Her Hon. Judge Katherine Delahunt in April 2015.

The Government has taken the necessary steps to formally advise President Higgins of the nomination in accordance with constitutional procedure.

In addition the Government agreed in principle to nominate Judge Sinéad Ní Chúlacháin for appointment by the President to the Circuit Court, once a vacancy arises in that Court following the anticipated appointment of Judge Mary Ellen Ring to the High Court.
