Shannon Cave!

I’ve been sitting on a few photos of this cave that I wanted to share. Finally I made a photo-trip this month with Breifne Caving Club and got more photos to justify an entry. Follow the link here.

Barton’s Hole, County Sligo

My latest entry, Barton’s Hole, is an anomaly for being both a cave and a mine. Read the article here! Enjoy!

Old Desmond Cave, Co. Tipperary.

Here’s some photos from Old Desmond Cave in County Tipperary – a new county in my collection. It’s a great cave and very photogenic.

Pollnagollum (Of The Boats): New Photos

I have updated the Pollnagollum page with a series of new photos. It’s been a while since I took photos here and the most recent ones were taken with the help of just one other caver. It took quite some time and patience on behalf of my helper. Also, a lot of vintage flashbulbs laid their lives down for these photos so I hope our efforts were worthwhile 🙂

Pollasumera Cave, Co. Fermanagh

I have photographed another cave from in the Marlbank region of Fermanagh. This is a major river cave in the Marble Arch sytem. Enjoy! Follow the link to photos here.

New photos from Pollnagossan

Yesterday, myself and another caver from Breifne Caving Club visited Pollnagossan in Co. Cavan. It is a cave of contrasts with very neat and well decorated sections amid large mud chambers and tight wet crawls. Follow the link to see the new photos:

A New Year and a New Cave!

A new cave measuring at least 40m in depth has been discovered in County Cavan. Follow the link to read about it. Happy New Year to all my readers and let’s hope for plenty more new discoveries in 2015!

Rediscovering Pol na Leprechauns, Co. Leitrim

Recently I have taken a short and involuntary break from caving but have finally returned to it. So, I am happy to present photos of the brilliant Pol na Leprechauns in County Leitrim. I have never seen published photos from this cave and it is one I really wanted to photograph.

This was possible on recent outings with Shannon Group and their work is to be commended for pushing the exploration of the much neglected caving region of North County Leitrim.

A Selection of Recent Photos

It’s been a while since I made any updates but I have not been inactive, all the opposite I have visited a large number of caves over July and August and thus taken on a few more projects! The following photos come from such caves, hopefully I will have more to show soon.

Peter Bryant’s Bullock Hole. Unfortunately I had some epic gear failure here (as well as in Cascades) so I was unable to light up the massive chamber to the extent I wanted. However, my flashbulb guns are being operated upon and I hope to return soon and finish the job:

Peter Bryant’s Bullock Hole

A flying visit to Pollnagossan produced this photo, of which I am quite pleased. I have updated the page also:

Trench Hall, Pollnagossan

I have also added a new entry for Pigeon Pot and updated Boho. Other caves visited such Cascades and Peter Bryant’s Bullock Hole will have to wait to get their own entries until I have more to show!

Boho Cave

I have numerous photos of Cascades Rising from two trips but I will create a page for it only when I take more photos that do justice to it’s final and beautiful stretch:

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
