  • Green Street Court House, Dublin, was the home of the Special Criminal Court until it moved to the new Criminal Court of Justice building near Phoenix Park in 2010. The Green Street court house is in the Smithfield area of Dublin and now handles civil cases, particularly custody cases. It was built in 1797 on the site of the old Newgate Gaol. The architect is believed to have been Whitmore Davis. The building was remodelled between 1837 and 1842 by Michael Semple. There was a royal visit in 1849, and the court was the venue of several noted trials such as those of Wolfe Tone, Robert Emmett in 1803, John Mitchel in 1848 and other Fenian leaders. It was extensively used during the troubles 1970 to 1990s including in 1976 the trial arising from the Herrema kidnapping.
