very easy to check online with a home insurance quote - if they cannot give it then it is a subsidence area - a lot of Cork is in a subsidence area. Friend in Bishopstown pays a premium for home insurance because of subsidence threat.

Its a major issue Around here alright . Ballincollig, wilton, sarsfield rd, pouladuff,mardyke, ballinlough, turners cross, parts of douglas and south douglas rd, some areas on northside Etc. That being said, Insurers will generally consider cover if the house in one of these areas but built aftet 1980 approx. Better foundations put in and better/more durable underground water pipes installed after that time. The Insurance claims are huge though.

Engineer survey is the only way really to know. Lot of boggy areas out that way though.

And anti social headbangers also.

Lads, Cork is built on a river flood plane that is under lain by mostly limestone with some Old Red Sandstone.
This combination is a shit storm of biblical proportions waiting to happen. If your house is built on Sandstone or competent limestone, happy days. Otherwise..... you're playing Russian roulette.

If you're in a noted subsidence area you'll get house insurance without cover for subsidence although some companies won't even give you a quote for those areas.
