As smoke from several wildfires blankets several areas of California, a reminder that its effects can linger for months:…
As part of an analysis we completed last year, we found that emergency room visits in CA surged several months after a previous large wildfire was extinguished.
If you're in the #BayArea, we suggest following our friends at @KQED for updates about smoke conditions near you. #KincadeFire

With #AirQuality #AirPollution at unhealthy levels in the #BayArea region I thought it might be helpful to outline what it means, why you should care, and some tips on what you should be doing.👇👇👇
Fine particulate matter or “PM2.5” are tiny particles suspended in the air that much smaller than the width of a human hair. When you breathe these particles enter your respiratory tract and end up in your lungs.
These last California wildfires have burned homes/buildings, as well as vegetation. That means the PM2.5 in the air most likely contains little bits of aerosolized electronics, rubber, plastic, asbestos, etc. That's what you could be breathing in. Nasty stuff!

I’ve tweeted about our @GlobalIrish communities in #SanDiego, #Seattle, #BayArea & tweeted throughout the visit to #LosAngeles but there are so many other fantastic organizations & communities in Western US celebrating their Irish heritage & links to Ireland. Here are a few ...
Did you know that #Portland is home to a beautiful cross commemorating the famine? Portland is also home to the wonderful @CorribTheatre, led by the fantastic Gemma Whelan, delivering high quality productions of contemporary Irish productions such as Charlie O'Neill's HURL.
I recently visited Salt Lake City & was delighted to meet the Hibernian Society there. Next year #Utah will celebrate the 150th anniversary of the #GoldenSpike - the completion of the transcontinental railroad - in which the Irish community in the US played such a prominent role.
