I've downloaded wireshark and quartz from trusted sites, although when I try to run wireshark I get a notification "unable to open programme" which quickly turns to "wireshark quit unexpectedly, reopen?" Where have I gone wrong?

Okay then, no use for xquartz here, since Wireshark 2.2 uses the Qt interface libraries to provide a macOS native interface. Have you installed from the Wireshark 2.2.6 intel 64.dmg ?

What were the "trusted sites"? If their hostnames didn't end in "wireshark.org" can you try downloading the official macOS installer from https://www.wireshark.org/? Note that we no longer require XQuartz.
