Air Pollution

Ireland as a whole may be relatively free of air pollution, when compared with other more industrialised countries.
In Ireland, air pollution is monitored by both the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Local Authorities. The main laws dealing with air pollution in Ireland are the Air Pollution Act 1987 and the Environmental Protection Agency Act 1992; 

The EPA is responsible for processing Air Pollution Licence appeals.  For further information in relation to these appeals, and the appropriate fee payable, please refer to Air Pollution Appeals section on the EPA website at the following link:  www.epa.ie/licensing/air/actappeals/
