The document ‘Recreation in the Irish Countryside’ published by Comhairle na Tuaithe is now available in the Members Section of the website. The document outlines the rights and responsibilities of countryside users as well as those of landowners and is well worth familiarising ourselves with as cavers in relation to the Occupiers Liability Act, 1995
There will be a REC 3 First Aid course running over the weekend of 6th til 8th December in Co. Wicklow. This is an entry level first aid course and suitable for cavers. The course has been arranged by ICRO and has been subsidised by both SUI and ICRO. Costs are a mere 15 euro per head. For more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org
The SUI is currently planning a series of caving personal skills days for 2014. Started in 2013 their aim is to help fill in gaps in cavers’ knowledge through a combination of classroom work and practical experience. The skills days are open to SUI members. Dates and details will be announced soon so watch this space!
The SUI is pleased to announce that Volume 4 number 2 of Irish Speleology (the SUI’s exploration journal) incorporating the Irish Sump Index (ISI) is now available to view on the Members Area of the website. Irish Sump Index was produced and published in coordination with the Cave Diving Group in 1988. Whilst there have been a great deal of discoveries since that time the information contained is still highly relevant. Over the last number of years copies of ISI have become increasingly few but now SUI members can consult the material at will. Enjoy!
The entries to the 2013 SUI Photographic Competition are now available to view here. Congratulations to winners Tim & Pam Fogg, Gaelan Elliffe and Orla Hammond! Kudos to the other entrants and many thanks for entering your shots!
