MapAlerter is a communications service available across Ireland. Alerts are mainly issued by Irish local authorities for a variety of topics. There are currently 21 Councils using the service to alert public subscribers for a variety of topics such as water outages, road closures, planning activity, severe weather, floods/hazards and much more. If you want to get SMS text, email and app notifications for Council events that may impact you then you can signup for a free account at any time. There's no cost to register and there is no cost to receive alerts.
MapAlerter also issues alerts from a number of automated data sources such as river sensor heights and bathing water quality updates. These additional alert categories are available nationwide and the alerts are offered independent of the local authorities using the service.
Wexford County Council was the first local authority to subscribe to the service (March 2011), while Cork City Council is the most recent Council to opt into MapAlerter as their public-facing alert service (June 2023).
