Back to Map of Irish Wetlands

Due to the absence of targeted wetland (and in particular fen) surveys in many counties, our knowledge of the national wetland resource remains poor. It is therefore likely that the Map of Irish Wetlands only shows a portion of the national resource. 

An indication of the number of wetlands currently mapped in each county;  the status of our knowledge of the wetland resource in each county; and whether extra wetland sites are known which have not, as yet, been imported to the map is presented in the table below.
