    Hello.

    I'm new to this forum and I've recently been doing a bit of work on holiday home in Ireland and have converted an attic space. The problem is I have installed a ring circuit back to existing DB which had a spare way and 30A mcb but when I juice up the new circuit and plug anything in the new sockets it trips the rcd. I have checked all connections within socket outlets and at the board but everything seems fine.
    Any suggestions what this might be?

    Wow what a tidy install, never seen one like that before, whoever done it clearly cares about their work
