About Us


Being a 3rd generation miner you could say tunnelling is in my blood, having worked on small and major tunnelling jobs throughout Ireland and the uk for various companies starting out in pit bottom and working my way up to miner, lead miner and then to running jobs myself, I really enjoyed the challenge and the responsibility so I started subcontracting some of the work myself then I set up leitir tunnelling in 2016 since then we have gone from strength to strength winning a major contract to install 400 meters of 1.2m pipe jacking and 5 shafts, we are constantly reinvesting in our equipment and staff, embracing new technologies and techniques. Safety is at the forefront of what we are about having won numerous Safety awards, we know too well how life changing accidents can happen so quickly and unfortunately you can never turn back the clock so we have to get it right every time, this is why we use 10min briefing every morning and two toolbox talks per week, method statements and risk assessment for every task and we have a monthly prize for the best safety attitude, our next top priorities are client satisfaction and quality workmanship this is why we have a close knit workforce with years of experience in the tunnelling industry with client satisfaction and quality workmanship repeat work will follow, here at leitir tunnelling we are firm believers in (SELF PRAISE IS NO PRAISE) so we won’t sing our own praises just check out what some of our clients have to say about us, we look forward to hearing from you about your next contract call today for advice and to discuss your requirements
