- EPA Ireland Press release: http://www.epa.ie/newsandevents/news/name,67225,en.html
- EPA Ireland will be issuing 12 regional press releases on 11th November. The 12 regional releases will focus on each of the 12 priority counties. They will provide the data for each county, the estimated number of homes that have tested high and not remediated and be encouraging homeowners to remediate.
- EPA Ireland will also run an advertisement campaign for one week on RTE radio 1 (beginning on 7th November) and on local radio in the 12 priority counties. They will also have a Twitter campaign on @EPARadiation. Their local press release for county Wexford will highlight a pilot study to lend digital monitors to homeowners that have already carried out a 3 month test, are above the reference level and have not yet remediated. EPA Ireland will lend passive detectors to members of the public through a library in county Wexford – they will borrow the monitors in the same way as they would borrow a book for 3 weeks. This is the info regarding the library pilot: https://wexfordsciencefestival.ie/bunclody/
