The Government has agreed that Level 5 as set out in the Plan for Living with COVID-19 will apply nationally until January 31st 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.

Mini Movies

Mini Movies are both action and stop motion short movies created by kids. Since 2012 Offaly County Council Arts Office has funded a professional film artist to work with three schools in the Birr Area over several days. The result are mini movies which are then screened at the OFFline Film Festival in Birr.The Mini Movies are now of the Offaly Arts Youtube. The latest Mini Movie from 2016 is shown below.
