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.

Zukey - Exhibition by Elma Lawless

Zukey by Elma Lawless


Inspired by her boys Zach and Luke, the brand Zukey was created and is based in Durrow, Co Offaly. The exhibition consists of colourful story cushions, an interactive wall mural and fun products for children, to bring colour and nature into their home.

The Zukey Tree is an interactive children’s mural, which the user makes from a kit. It is designed as an ongoing craft project for parents and children to make together. The starter kit contains: stencil of a tree, felt leaves, birds and animals. Families can buy additional sets of felt pieces to decorate their tree. The story cushions are designed to inspire young imaginations. The range of soft furnishings and decorations for children’s rooms continue the theme of the natural world and complement The Zukey Tree.

This exhibition will run in Tullamore Library for the month of January.
