The Irish Courts
1 Civil cases deal with disputes between individuals. Criminal cases involve the prosecution of crimes.

3 The Circuit Court deals with more serious criminal offences and civil cases involving greater amounts of money.
4 The High Court deals with the most serious civil and criminal cases. When sitting as a criminal court it is called the Central Criminal Court and there is a jury.
