Bray one of the worst towns in Ireland for air pollution according to latest World Health Organisation data

By: William O’Toole

Bray is one of the worst towns in Ireland for air pollution according to latest data from the World Health Organisation.

One of the methods they use to assesses air quality is by examining the levels of a type of pollution known as particulate matter (PMs).

The latest data from WHO says that Bray was found to have PM10 levels of 20µg/m3 and according to the WHO this could affect people with breathing difficulties in the town.

Longford, Bray, Galway and Dublin breached the safe levels for another measure known as PM2.5, with Longford the worst offender at 15µg/m3.

Worldwide 80% of cities that measure outdoor air pollution are failing to meet its guidance for safe levels of air quality the organisation have said.
