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.

Press release from Green Offaly: Welcome to the Green Offaly web and social media platforms!

Welcome to the Green Offaly web and social media platforms! 


Today is the 51st Earth Day and Green Offaly has joined the World’s Largest Environmental Movement!


From its very inception, Earth Day has been about community mobilization:


In 1970, 20 million individuals — at the time, 10% of the U.S. population — mobilized to call for greater protections for our planet. This became the world’s first Earth Day.


Fast forward 51 years and Green Offaly are aiming to mobilise the 77,000 members of our Communities here in Offaly to begin the journey towards a sustainable future.


We hope that the website gives you a good idea of what Green Offaly aims to achieve over the next 20 years in partnership with the Communities of Offaly.


Please post your tips, thoughts and pictures so that we can share what great things are happening across the County.


Join us as we transition through the challenges ahead.


For People, Places and Planet.


Happy Earth Day,


The Green Offaly Team
