General Comments:

The main grass pollen season is expected to start in early June in the south-east of Ireland so now is the time to start taking your medication so that you avoid that first hay fever attack. The peak of the early-flowering grasses is over but low amounts of pollen will still be airborne in good weather, triggering sneezes in some people. The tree pollen season is now in decline with mainly low amounts of oak pollen.

Tree Comments:

There will continue to be low amounts of tree pollen, mainly oak pollen, for another week or so.

Grass Comments:

There are some early-flowering grass species releasing pollen during dry, warm weather but the risk will remain generally low. A few people may get some mild symptoms.

Weed Comments:

The weed pollen risk will be low.

Spore Comments:

The spore risk will rise to moderate during warm dry weather. Cladosporium, some basidiospores and tilletiopsis are currently airborne.
