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.

Writing for Wellbeing

Writing for Wellbeing with E.R. Murray


Join this supportive and friendly writing workshop designed to help encourage wellbeing. Through a series of writing exercises and prompts, you will try various techniques that tap into your creativity to explore emotions and ideas, building a store of writing tools that you can use to help boost focus, inspiration, enthusiasm, and confidence. The workshop focuses on getting your ideas out and words on the page, so you will not be required to share your work aloud with other participants, but there is plenty of time for discussion, reflection, and questions. Suitable for beginners or anyone who wants to explore how creativity can be utilised to improve wellbeing.
