New government office for Nenagh

A new office of the Department of
Employment Affairs and Social Protection
is to open in Nenagh.


The department has taken out a
longterm lease on a property at Ballalley
Court, Kenyon Street, and will
spend €550,000 on refurbishing the
building, according to TDs Michael
Lowry and Alan Kelly who have welcomed
the development.


Deputy Kelly said he was delighted
with the decision of the OPW to create
a new office for the Department
of Employment Affairs and Social
Protection in Nenagh.


Deputy Lowry said the works
would result in “a bespoke modern
fit-for-purpose public office facility”.


He added: “This facility will meet
the needs of staff who are presently
operating from inadequate accommodation.
“It will also allow for access for
the public in a private/confidential,
comfortable setting.”


Said Deputy Kelly: “This is good
news for those working for the
Department of Employment and
Social Protection as their current
offices are not up to standard and
these new premises will be state of
the art for working in and dealing
with the public. I want to thank Minister
Boxer Moran for providing the
funding.”


The works on refurbising and fitting
out the new office will be carried
out by DJF Engineering Services.
