Cavan Town has enjoyed consistently high levels of air quality in the opening months of 2022, according to results from the town's ambient air quality monitoring station.
The monitoring station was installed in 2020 by Cavan County Council and the EPA at Cavan Courthouse, on Farnham Street.
The results from the first quarter of 2022 shows that the daily average air quality consistently reached the 'good' standard or higher on the EPA's Air Quality Index for Health.
Cathaoirleach of Cavan County Council, Cllr Clifford Kelly, welcomed the news and called for everyone to contribute to maintaining these levels by burning less fossil fuel and taking fewer car journeys.
Elsewhere, Director of Service with responsibility for Climate Change, Paddy Connaughton, said the County Council is committed to reducing emissions in Cavan Town and across the county.
