Geological drilling

​Geological Survey Ireland carries out geological drilling as part of several programmes. Our Geological Mapping team use the data to improve our subsurface understanding and enhance our maps and 3D models of the Irish crust. The data is also used to support geotechnical and geological engineering studies.

Our Groundwater and Geothermal teams also use the data to assess our groundwater resources and to estimate geothermal heat below the surface.
