Amendment to Order 36 Circuit Court Rules

An important amendment to the Circuit Court Rules removes from Order 36 the temporal limit of 12 years after which execution was up to now impermissible.

As of 29 March 2024 S.I. No. 107/2024 amends Order 36 rules 9 and 10 of the Circuit Court Rules by removing the reference to decrees and judgments being in force for a period of twelve years.

This is a significant change and brings clarity to an area of law that has been in a state of flux over the last number of years.

S.I. No. 107/2024 is available in full at the link below and it also set out in the attached.
