Change in jurisdiction with effect from 3 February 2014:

These rules of court are due to come into effect on the 3rd February 2014 to coincide with the increase in jurisdiction of the District Court and Circuit Court.
The Rules consolidate the rules affecting the civil procedures of the District Court.

There has been an extensive revision of the existing rules of court so that, in regard to civil procedures (apart from family law and licensing), they are as self-contained and as easy to follow as possible.

They also introduce some fundamental changes to how civil proceedings in the District Court can be commenced.

Part 3 of the Courts and Civil Law (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 2013 (No. 32 of 2013), which increased the monetary jurisdiction of the Circuit Court and District Court, will take effect from the 3rd of February 2014. The Act increased the jurisdiction of the Circuit Court to €75,000 and of the District Court to €15,000. In regard to personal injury actions, the revised monetary jurisdiction limit of the Circuit Court will be €60,000.
