President Michael D Higgins has appointed Mr Justice Gerard Hogan (pictured) as a new judge of the Supreme Court.
The ceremony took place at Áras an Uachtaráin on Friday (15 October).
The Government had nominated Mr Justice Hogan in April. He had previously been the advocate general of the European Court of Justice (CJEU).
The vacancy at the court arose after Ms Justice Mary Irvine was appointed as President of the High Court last year.
Mr Justice Hogan was a judge at the High Court between 2010 and 2014, and at the Court of Appeal from 2014 to 2018.
