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.

Ballyleakin Art Group Exhibition


Ballyleakin Art Group consists of eight amateur artists from the Edenderry area. The group get their name from Ballyleakin House, the home of Mary Beattie. For a number of years the group gathered weekly around Mary's dining room table to paint under the direction of Anna Winiarska. After Mary's untimely death in 2010 the group moved into the local library and continue to work from there under Anna's guidance. Oils and acrylics are the mediums used.

For more details on the exhibition please contact Edenderry Library on Tel: 046 9731028 or email:
