The Government has agreed that Level 5 as set out in the Plan for Living with COVID-19 will apply nationally until April 5th 2021. The Government has clearly stated that there is an absolute need to minimise the level of mobility and congregation of people in order to reduce all opportunities for transmission of the virus.

Consequently, and in line with current public health guidance, the Offices of Offaly County Council are closed for walk-in services to support this reduced mobility policy.

Public access cannot be facilitated during LEVEL 5 restrictions. Therefore, Offaly County Council services will be available by telephone, email, online post and only where absolutely necessary and in exceptional circumstances by appointment. Please read latest information.

1st hour free parking from 1st December Tullamore Municipal District

Cathaoirleach of Tullamore Municipal District, Cllr. Danny Owens urges people to stay local, shop local and click local - even in extraordinary times, we can all make a difference!

Offaly County Council is preparing to welcome people back into the town following the level 5 lockdown while adhering to key public health guidelines.  We have been working hard with our partners to support the reopening of Tullamore Town and to create conditions that everyone can feel confident that they can once more begin to enjoy Tullamore Town. 

With this in mind, Tullamore Municipal District is extending its current 15 minutes free parking, this free period will be extended to one hour from Tuesday 1st December until Thursday 31st December.  You can park for up to one hour without purchasing a parking ticket in a legal parking space.

With free Wifi available in Tullamore Town Centre, contactless pay and display machines available in Market Sq and O’Connor Sq, Tullamore offers a great shopping experience and with over 1200 car parking spaces available throughout the town so you can start your Christmas shopping local and early.  Why not spread the cost of Christmas, avoiding last minute shopping, crowds and help keep consumers and retail assistants safe. 

Many retailers in Tullamore have geared up for click-and-collect, phone-and-collect and online sales, Cathaoirleach Cllr. Danny Owens says we now need to show our support for our family and friends by making sure that what we spend this Christmas stays local.  Don’t forget all day parking is available for as little at €2.50 in Kilbride Plaza North, Market Sq East Centre, O'Neill's Place, St. Brigids place, Store Street, Tanyard Small Park, Tanyard, Convent Road.
