MapAlerter is a local authority alert service for people living in Ireland who want to receive important notifications from their County or City Council. MapAlerter is a free service and there is no charge to receive any alerts.

-- How It Works --
You can submit two locations as part of your MapAlerter account (typically Home and Work) and from here the App will know which alerts you should receive. When a Council issues an alert they must define an alert boundary. If either of your map points is within this boundary then you will receive an alert.

-- Alert Categories --
This award-winning service* is used by a number of Irish Councils to issue alerts for a variety of service categories. You can subscribe to all categories or just some of them, depending on your preference. For example, you may not wish to receive Flood Alerts if you live on a hill! The complete list of MapAlerter categories is as follows:
-- Water Service Alerts
-- Road Closures & Diversion Alerts
-- Community Alerts & Notices
-- Flood Alerts
-- Severe Weather Warnings
-- Planning Application Activity
** Check on to see what categories are used by your Council. In some cases a Council may only alert for some of these categories.

-- Councils using MapAlerter --
MapAlerter is currently used by a growing number of Irish Councils to power their corporate communications strategy, with more hopefully coming on board in the future. The full list of active MapAlerter local authorities is always available and up to date on the MapAlerter website ("Councils" menu, top).

-- Privacy Note --
MapAlerter does not track your location (i.e. GPS). Instead MapAlerter asks you for a one-off map location and this will be used to determine the alerts you will receive. So if you have registered your Home Location in Enniscorthy then you will only ever receive alerts for Enniscorthy, regardless if you are currently out of the local area. The level of accuracy is entirely up to you but be sure to register in your area to receive the most accurate alerts.

Customer Reviews

Waste of time

Nobby McSavage

Clearly some start up company trying to get money from local authorities who don't know how manage their own communications.... a failed app - maps don't update when pin is moved, camera icon not working 'device not supported' on iPhone 6, 10.2. Waste of time.

Like the service, but device not supported for planning view?

It's okay but won't show planning apps on iPhone 5 and a few other bugs
