My Department occupies offices in two locations, in Trinity Point, Dublin 2 and Government Buildings in Ballina, Co. Mayo.

The office space in the building in Ballina is shared between five Government Departments. In Ballina my Department currently has three desks in the space allocated to us which are not allocated to individual staff but are used by Department staff from Dublin when they attend the Ballina office. My Department is in discussions with OPW to secure additional space.
