New Tipperary Wetland Map Research Project Initiated

County Tipperary map of wetlands after inclusion of new wetland sites in 2014


A revised map of the wetlands in County Tipperary has been compiled based on an aerial photographic analysis and sub soils data. 

This project undertaken by Wetland Surveys Ireland has located 581 potential wetland sites in the county. Prior to this reserach project only 74 wetland sites were recognised within the county. 

The majority of the sites have little associated information on the wetland habitats that are likely to occur on the areas identified. A full county wetland survey is required to address this information deficit.

The Wetland Map of Ireland now displays a total of 5,200  sites nationally.
