Brigid Irish will be back in District Court on Monday, June 22, when she appears before Judge Mary Hoak for arraignment.

This is Irish’s fourth scheduled appearance in District Court. Her case moved from County Court to District Court after the start of the New Year.

Irish is a former Grand Count Building Department administrative assistant. She stands accused of misappropriating more than half a million dollars in Building Department funds during her tenure with the county.

Irish was arrested in early May 2014. She is facing 915 counts of embezzlement of public property, 12 counts of forgery, four counts of theft and one count of attempt to influence a public servant.

Irish first began working for the building department in 2001.
