Under the Government's Decentralisation Programme it is proposed to decentralise 85 civil servants from the Department of Social and Family Affairs to Carrickmacross.

The OPW initially decided to participate in a Monaghan County Council backed mixed use development in the town in order to meet the requirements of the Department. This development, for a variety of reasons outside the control of OPW, did not proceed. OPW is now examining further options with Monaghan County Council.
