No physical sitting for taxation of costs hearings

The Dublin county registrar Rita Considine has confirmed that following previous notifications, there will be no physical sitting for the list scheduled for the taxation of costs hearing on 22 February.

Those cases which are ready to proceed and where both parties are legally represented will instead be heard by virtual meeting room (VMR) at 2pm on 22 February.

Practitioners are asked to contact the Dublin Circuit Court Office at dublinciviloffice@courts.ie, immediately and indicate the applications on the list which are suitable for hearing by VMR.

The email subject should be marked: URGENT TAXATIONS LIST 22 FEBRUARY 2021.


The virtual court room number and relevant instructions will be made available in the usual manner.

For hearings to be dealt with efficiently and on a timely basis, and in accordance with Government and HSE guidelines and policies, parties will have to ensure that:

  1. Copies of documents to be relied upon have been disclosed to the opposing side, in advance of the hearing,
  2. Copies of all orders relied upon, and all vouchers, are available for the county registrar and will be lodged via post or drop box facilities in the Dublin Circuit Court Office, not later than five working days in advance of the hearing, with the record number and hearing date clearly marked on the documents,
  3. All original affidavits are stamped and affidavits and exhibits are filed in the Circuit Court Office.
