The SUI is pleased to announce that it has got its hands on a few copies of the now difficult to obtain ‘Beneath Our Feet: the Caves and Limestone Scenery of the North of Ireland’ by SUI members Tim & Pam Fogg. This is a classic text giving an overview of the limestones features in Fermanagh and elsewhere in Northern Ireland and is a must for anyone interested in the caves and caving in this part of Ireland. Visit the SUI Shop here for details of how to order!
Expedition season is here! SUI members can apply for financial help if travelling on expedition and indeed SUI has assisted a number of expeditions over the last 15 years. The application form has just been updated and can be viewed here. Old expedition reports can be viewed here. Another great reason to join the SUI!
Don’t forget the SUIs resin bolt installation training workshop in Fermanagh on Saturday 12th of July! This training day is open to SUI members and costs 10 euros. The day will focus on the theory and practice of installing resin fixed anchors for caving purposes and is to form part of the SUIs resin bolting programme and run in conjunction with the SUIs Bolting Policy. Formal training opportunities for this type of bolting are few and far between so don’t miss out! To book your place email firstname.lastname@example.org
