The Government has agreed that Level 5 as set out in the Plan for Living with COVID-19 will apply nationally until May 17th 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.

Please note that our library buildings will re-open to the public for Browsing Services and Contact & Collect from 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.

IF YOU DISCOVER A FIRE;

  •  NEVER TRY AND DEAL WITH THE FIRE YOURSELF
  •  TELL OTHERS IN THE AREA WHO MAY BE AT RISK
  •  LEAVE THE AREA AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE
  •  CALL THE Fire Service at 999/112 AND GIVE THEM THE EXACT LOCATION OF THE FIRE WITH A LANDMARK SUCH AS A FARM, PUB OR MAIN ROAD. THIS WILL HELP THEM LOCATE THE FIRE QUICKLY
  •  KEEP ACCESS POINTS AND FOREST ENTRANCES CLEAR FOR THE EMERGENCY SERVICES
