2. Irish Mobile Number (optional) includes an optional feature to contact subscribers by SMS text message for Level Orange and Level Red severe weather warnings for Co. Mayo. The subscriber must add their mobile number in their account panel on the website as an optional feature.

3. Password

4. At least one preferred mapped location / Eircode offers focused alerts that are locally relevant to subscribers. To make this happen, allows you to add mapped locations for which you want to receive alerts. A minimum of one location is required while it is possible to add up to three mapped locations. It is up to the subscriber to map their location on the system and to provide the level of accuracy they are satisfied with. It is not necessary to map exactly to a home location – the centre of a town or townland is usually sufficient to ensure you get the alerts that interest you. stores coordinates statically in a database after they are updated by the subscriber and does not track your location at any time. Coordinates are stored as a Latitude Longitude pair.

5. IP address
