Got a missed call earlier (tried ringing it back but no answer) and thought if I knew the location I might know where it is. It starts with 01 5425...is there anyway I can search for the number? Golden pages, eircom pages don't let you search a phone number. Or even if anyone here knows where roughly in Dublin where that phone number could be from? Thanks for any help.

Its an ISDN block so in theory it could be anywhere in the 01 Area.

Thanks Sizzler....so there's no way of typing in the number to any phone book search the way you can type in the name of a business and get the number?

reverse telephone directory. only eircom have access to this kind of information and they won't give it out without a garda warrant.

one of the reasons it took them so long to bring out a CD copy of the phone book was because they wanted to make sure it couldn't be hacked into doing reverse-lookups (or so they claimed at the time).

I think it would depend on when they got their phone line.

Lucan has newer numbers for the new estates but it’s associated with Lucan (using Lucan as an example as I lived there) but assumed it was the same. Another example would be celbridge 627.

This is just a general observation but it would seem to me that it would hold up just as an estimate

Except half or more of the 628 block is Maynooth, and so on... its not like the UK where the numbers are very heavily locked down to specific exchanges.
