A new state prosecutor has been appointed to Longford Circuit Court.

Roscommon native Shane P Geraghty was welcomed to the role by judge Keenan Johnson at the opening session of this week’s Longford circuit on Tuesday.

The well-known barrister, who has worked for a number of years in the Midlands circuit, replaces Des Dockery in the role, who earlier this year was called to the inner bar as a senior counsel.
