Ardee drugs court has 'succeeded beyond expectations'

Judge John Coughlan

At a sitting of Ardee District Court last week, Judge John Coughlan said the drugs court in the area had succeeded beyond expectations, and others were now looking to follow the initiative.

He thanked the Probation Service and Gardai and practitioners for the success it had achieved at the April sitting of Ardee District Court.

He revealed it had succeeded so much that it was now decided to start a drugs court in Belfast, court officers having travelled down to view the local model.
