Abstract

On October 4, 2013, Ireland held a national referendum to create an intermediate court of appeal. The referendum passed, and the Court of Appeal went into operation on October 28, 2014. On July 12, 2016, the Courts Service published its 2015 Annual Report. That report provides statistics in regard to the Court of Appeal’s first complete calendar year of operation. We can now ask the question: Has the Irish Court of Appeal successfully dealt with the judicial backlog of appellate cases which it was created to address?
