Gas Networks Ireland owns, operates, builds and maintains the natural gas network in Ireland.
We ensure that almost 688,000 natural gas customers receive a safe, efficient and secure supply of natural gas, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
We transport natural gas through our 14,172km pipeline network. We have pipelines in Scotland, Northern Ireland and the Isle of Man. We do not own the gas; we transport it on behalf of suppliers and shippers.
Through the New Connections Programme, Gas Networks Ireland continually brings the benefits of natural gas to new towns in line with the Commission for Regulation of Utilities (CRU) Policy. We connect all customers to the network, regardless of their supplier.
Natural gas is a clean, efficient and cost effective fuel. We actively promote natural gas as a fuel of choice for homes, businesses and industry. We are keen to see greater utilisation of the natural gas network and look for opportunities to expand the network where viable.
Our subsidiary, Aurora Telecom, operates a power fibre network across the country as well as a Dublin Metropolitan Area network. Aurora Telecom has completed its fibre network from Dublin, via Galway and Ennis, to Cork. Gas Networks Ireland facilitates access, on a temporary basis, to dark fibre adjacent to the Mayo-Galway pipeline between Coolturk (Co. Mayo) and Ballymoneen (Co. Galway).
We manage a 24 hour gas emergency service handling over 19,000 call-outs a year.
