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.
There will continue to be low amounts of tree pollen, mainly oak pollen, for another week or so.
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.
The weed pollen risk will be low.
The spore risk will rise to moderate during warm dry weather. Cladosporium, some basidiospores and tilletiopsis are currently airborne.
