Work has begun on one of the largest ever-civic building projects to be undertaken in Co Limerick.
The €6m project by ABK architects consists of 1000 sq.m of area office accommodation and a regional library for Limerick County Council together with 540sq.m of court facilities for the Court Services of Ireland.
Cathaoirleach of Limerick County Council Cllr. John Gallahue, said: "The range and extent of the excellent facilities that will be provided in this modern and spacious complex will enable the Council to provide a more comprehensive service than ever before.
"I am also confident that the new Headquarters will help establish Kilmallock as an important centre of activity in South Limerick."
The commencement of work on the project comes less than six months after Limerick County Council officially opened its newest Area Headquarters at Rathkeale and a state-of-the-art administrative building and office complex at Lissanalta House in Dooradoyle.
