The Government has agreed that Level 5 (with some amendments) as set out in the Plan for Living with COVID-19 will continue to apply nationally until further notice. The Government has clearly stated that there is a continued need to minimise the level of mobility and congregation of people in order to reduce all opportunities for transmission of the virus.

Please note that our library buildings have reopened to the public for Browsing Services and Contact & Collect since Monday, May 10th. Please see Library Page.

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.

Community Call Visit to Kilcormac Development Association


Cathaoirleach of Offaly County Council Peter Ormond and CE Anna Marie Delaney today paid a visit to Kilcormac Development Association to witness at first hand the wonderful work being done in association with Offaly Local Development Company, West
& South Offaly Homefix assisted by the Community Forum. All social distancing and public health measures were observed during the visit.

KDA have been able to offer an expanded Meals on Wheels service to those requiring hot meals delivered in South & West Offaly including Birr, Shinrone, Clareen and Coolderry areas while still covering the Kilcormac, Mountbolus, Cadamstown, Kinnitty, Rath and Fivealley areas. The meals are freshly prepared, cooked and delivered on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and they can offer 2 meals per day covering 6 days a week if clients so wish. The service has seen demand doubled in recent times with over 100 dinners per day going out and the capacity to expand is there if this demand grows. They along with many other voluntary organisations have received grants from the Council under the Department of Rural and Community Development’s Covid-19 Emergency Fund.

This is just one example of the response from so many volunteers throughout the county, who have rallied at this time to help the most vulnerable in our community.

Offaly County Council commend the vital role these volunteers play now more than ever in all our communities
