Air Quality Monitoring at Bodkin Roundabout, Galway

Data from Air Quality Monitoring at Bodkin Roundabout, Galway

The Environmental Protection Agency manages the National Ambient Air Quality Network.

The Air Quality Index for Health  is calculated every hour and tells you if air quality is good, fair, poor or very poor in your region. The above index is for overall air quality in the Large Towns AQIH Region. 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 PM10 monitor is located on a busy roundabout on the outskirts of Galway City. It is operated by the Public Analyst Laboratory Galway. 

The measurement method used for PM10 is not automatic therefore the results are not available immediately. The most recent available results can be viewed through the links below. Heavy metals and Benzo (a) Pyrene are also measured at this site.

This work is ongoing.
