General Comments:

The tree pollen season is now in decline with mainly low amounts of oak pollen. The main grass pollen season is a couple of weeks away, 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. Low amounts of early-flowering grasses are airborne in good weather, triggering sneezes in some people.

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 currently peaking 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.
