    Belated reply, and I may previously have recounted the tale, but we were based in Ballyvaughan on a caving holiday in the '80s and one of the group had cycled there across Ireland on somethig like a ahopping bike. To to set the scene, she was a formidable German lass, blond, pigtails, and a horned helmet and spear wouldn't have seemed out of place. She arrived a few days after the rest of us after this long cycle ride on a crap bike and walked into the bar and her sheer presence caused all heads to turn whereopon she announced ti the whole bar "christ my fanny is f@£&@n sore!"

    The pause in conversation was quite long to say the least

    Sadly we never managed to sweet talk the Ailwee owner to let us explore beyond the ahow cave.

    Pollnagollum - poulelva throughtrip was a highlight I recall doing after our morning Guiness had extended into a bit of a session. The entrance 100' abseil was a bit daunting but as soon as I lowered myself over the edge the adrenalin cut in and I instantly sobered up ! Another through trip recall the pre-rigged exit came out in a field of bullocks who were chewing the rope we were hanging on. Each time I shooed them off they returned a bit closer and bolder.

    Must go back

    Changed hands a few times since

    Sign in Killaloe, at the bridge had over three dozen locations. Removed as people found it confusing!
