Legislation to promote mediation as an alternative to court proceedings in Ireland has been approved.

"The Mediation Bill returned to the Dáil after it was unexpectedly amended in the Seanad to address concerns that women could be pressured to take part in mediation with abusive partners.
...
Justice Minister Charlie Flanagan said: “I believe that enactment of this Bill will have an enormous beneficial effect in terms of promoting the use of mediation as an alternative to court proceedings.
“The Bill has been broadly welcomed by the mediation sector and I thank them for their input.”

I get asked a lot of questions about #confidentiality in #mediation
This recent decision in the USA confirms that statements you make during mediation cannot be used later in court. You cannot later tell a court (or a judge) that in mediation the other party said this or promised that. Mediation is sealed. What is said in mediation stays in mediation.
As your mediator all I can tell a court is whether or not you attended, whether or not you participated, and whether or not you reached an agreement.
You can repeat things that were said outside of the mediation process eg in a letter or email. If the other party says something to you in mediation then repeats it later in an email or text, you can reveal the later email or text, but not the original statement that was made during the mediation.
Some exceptions exist around safety of participants, commission of a crime and similar disclosures, or if all parties consent to disclosure; however, as a rule of thumb, if its said in mediation it cannot be reported, repeated or relied upon outside of mediation.

"The Massachusetts Appeals Court recently held that statements made by a party during mediation cannot be used later in a lawsuit to support a claim of fraud or similar claims."
