This paper examines one early shared service initiative in Irish local government – the National Waste Collection Permitting Office, a shared service initiative commenced by Offaly County Council in 2012. The initiative is located in the context of discussion of wider reforms taking place in the local government sector in Ireland. The support of both political and management level staff is crucial to driving progress on shared service programmes and that existed and underpinned this initiative. A relatively high degree of prior cooperation between Irish municipalities supported the emergence of this shared service initiative as did clear direction in government policy and the existence of cost pressures.
