Ring up the customer care of the various networks. Give name / address and see if they're in the directory. If they are they'll give you the number and if not they won't.
Have you tried Googling some of his details? You'd be shocked what you'll find these days and you may find alternative contact details for him.
Try www.eircomphonebook.ie as well for a possible landline number for him.
No harm sending a letter in the meantime anyway asking him to contact you.MOD MODE: If anyone posts in this thread with illegal or similiar dubious ways of getting someones number you're getting a weeks ban.

maybe ring the network, explain your case, give them your number, they can contact the person then to see if they are willing to let you have the number?

Not really. Despite what some people think there is a list of registered phone for mobiles. It's just not made as available as say the golden pages. For example on meteor you have to actually select the option to have your number removed from that public list. So it depends really on if the networks default position is have people on public or private.
Mobiles are the same as landlines, there's just a little more anonymity because it's faster to change your name on it. The pass your details onto interested third parties can be just normal people.

Absolutely no chance the networks will give you a persons phone number, huuuuuge breach of data protection and a sackable offence, doesnt matter who it is they wont give it out

If their name is in a public directory it doesn't matter how you ask, they've made the information public so they want people to have it and it's not up to the agent to decide if you're worthy of it or not
When my laser card went missing someone called aib and asked them to call me and give me their number. Don't see why a network wouldn't do something similar

It's hardly the same thing. Besides I know people who work in call centres - not really what they're for, this kinda thing.
