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.

Press Release - May 28th 2018

While in Ferbane on Monday to open the new Fire Station, Minister Eoghan Murphy also took the opportunity to meet some of the new residents of Mill Race Ferbane.

Offaly County Council acquired 5 units in this development from Droughill Builders Ltd. following a call to developers to provide finished, turnkey standard units to the Local Authority. Droughill Builders finished out the units to a high standard and the houses were allocated to five families in recent weeks. The Minister met the families present on Monday and wished them well in their new homes.

Offaly County Council continues its work programme to meet the targets set by the Department of Housing, Planning, Community & Local Government through a blend of new construction schemes, acquisition of houses, leasing and provision of the Housing Assistance Payment.
