10.3.3 Gas

The national gas mains network traverses County Kilkenny from the north west to south east, serving Kilkenny City and Ballyragget in the north of the county before continuing to Tipperary from where it serves Waterford via Carrick-on-Suir.  A spur from this line starts south of Kilkenny City, from where it runs in a south eastern direction, serving both Great Island and Wexford Town. A spur from the Waterford pipeline in turn serves Ferrybank and Belview Port in the south of the County.  Subject to appropriate commercial and technical evaluation, the Council will support an extension of the gas network to other significant population centres in the county.
