Natural Hazards

Although Ireland does not experience many direct effects of the Earth's most destructive natural hazards, we are indirectly affected by phenomena such as volcanic ash (e.g. the eruption of Eyjafjallajökull in Iceland in 2010).

Other hazards, such as sinkholes, landslides and flooding are more frequent in Ireland.

Earthquakes
​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Landslides
Coastal erosion
Sinkholes
Volcanoes
Tsunami
