Establishment of Municipal District Offices and Dissolution of Town Councils

The main changes affecting County Monaghan arising from the re-structuring of local government is the abolition of the five Town Councils and the establishment of three new Municipal Districts. These changes come into operation from the 1st of June, 2014. As and from this date Local Government will be operated by a single administration structure and will have a single corporate entity with headquarters at County Council Offices, The Glen, Monaghan.
