The Tellus survey, conducted by the Geological Survey Ireland (GSI), which is collecting the latest geological information across Ireland, is due to commence its next surveying phase across parts of Meath, Kildare, Wicklow, Dublin, Laois, Offaly, Westmeath, Longford, Tipperary, Roscommon, Galway and Mayo.
To gather this data, teams of two will be collecting soil samples at selected sites. Each sample is approximately 1 kg of soil per 4 km2.
If your land contains a sample site, GSI would appreciate your co-operation in allowing the survey access for a short period. If you have concerns, or would like more information, please visit www.tellus.ie or call the Tellus Freephone information line on 1800 45 55 65.
