Is it safe to dig on my property?

It's important to check the location of any underground gas pipes BEFORE carrying out any work on your property. Digging into natural gas pipelines can cause major disruption, serious injury and even death.

Whoever is doing the work (whether it's you, a builder or a contractor) should always dial before they dig by calling 1800 42 77 47^. Gas Networks Ireland will then provide the necessary information for working safely in the vicinity of gas pipes. You can also download a safety advice booklet for working in the vicinity of gas pipelines here.

In the event that a pipeline is damaged while work is being carried out on your property, you may be liable to pay the repair cost of the pipeline to Gas Networks Ireland.
