Free Council Text Alert Service for Monaghan

MapAlerter is used by Monaghan County Council to communicate with local residents and workers about service disruptions, public safety messages and other important updates. You can now sign up for this free service to get SMS text alerts, emails and app notifications for your local area.

Free SMS Text, Email & App Alerts for your Monaghan location

Monaghan County Council is using MapAlerter since 2012 to issue alerts for all parts of the county. By signing up, you can select a mapped location in the county to ensure you only receive alerts that are locally relevant. For example, if you live in Carrickmacross then you will only get road alerts for this part of Monaghan and you will not get alerts for any faraway places.

You also have the choice to add a Home and Work location so you can get alerts for both places along with commute alerts for any road issues between both places. For example, if you live in Emyvale and work in Ballybay then you will receive alerts for both of these places along with any road alerts issued along the connecting route (N2, R162, Monaghan Town, etc.).
