Recent Local Seismic Events

Important: The list and map below show recent seismic events (quarry blasts, earthquakes and other disturbances) automatically recorded by INSN. It is important to note that seismic events marked with “A” in the status column (STAT) have not been reviewed by a seismologist. Confirmed seismic events are marked with “C”.  Earthquakes do not occur very frequently in Ireland and many of the seismic events listed below are quarry blasts or other disturbances (see “TYPE”).
