Radiation Monitoring

Newry, Mourne and Down, along with all other district councils in Northern Ireland are a member of a nation-wide monitoring network known as LARNET (Local Authority Radiation Network).

Radiation monitors have been installed at five locations throughout Northern Ireland, which includes Kilkeel, to continuously check levels of radiation.

The Council participates in a regional sampling programme to check radioactivity levels in foodstuffs and environmental samples throughout the district.
