Carrickbeg Rising, County Fermanagh


It being summer and all, another wet cave was knocked off the list, this time Carrickbeg Rising in County Fermanagh. Only a few pics to show from this short cave as I did not feel like getting my camera too wet nor did I like asking cavers to pose while threading water 🙂

Nice cave, nice company, nice day day out

New Discoveries in North Leitrim

This weekend a joint effort by Shannon Group, Breifne Caving Club and Queens University Caving Club led to the discovery of a new 50 meter pitch on Largy in North Leitrim. The fantastic new pitch, found after a short dig through a gravel choked crawl, leads into a large chamber shared by a neighbouring pothole, Pollrunda and makes for and excellent through trip.
