I see. In your case, you can use small claims against your friend. The procedure is intended for claims of up to €2,000 and can be summarised as follows:
(1) You will complete an application form and send it to the Small Claims Registrar with the relevant fee or applies online(2) The application is registered by the Registrar(3) A copy of the claim and a Notice of Claim is sent by the Registrar to the respondent (your friend)
Once your case has been referred for a hearing in the District Court, you will receive a letter from the District Court office telling you the date and time of the court hearing and the location of the court itself. The case will be heard in public as part of a normal sitting of the District Court.
You may access detailed guidance on how to apply to the small claims registrar on the Courts Service website. You should print an application for the small claims procedure (doc). This application form is also available from local District Court offices.
Also, usually, staff in the District Court office can help you in completing the application form.
