Air Quality Monitoring in Wexford Town

The Environmental Protection Agency manages the national ambient air quality network. The Wexford Town station updates every two to five minutes with the calculated Air Quality Index for Health (AQIH) and the Air Quality Map shows you if air quality is good, fair, poor or very poor. You can find out if air quality is likely to affect your health and what you can do to protect your health on the Air Quality Index for Health page.

The Wexford Town site is located at the Wexford Opera House on High Street. The station has been installed in partnership with Wexford County Council under the National Ambient Air Quality Monitoring Programme 2017 - 2022. Results of monitoring are presented graphically at the link below.
