Archived Trip Info

Believe it or not we actually do go caving in places other than Ireland, some reports have been written up, some just have the original details from beforehand.

Irish Student Caving Forum 2010

SCF 2010: the first forum to be held in County Leitrim!

Irish Student Caving Forum 2006

I know I know, it's not really foreign. But there were some cavers from Australia! And besides, we organised it, so the page has to go somewhere.

Berger 2004

OK this isn't the 'Official' page but I thought it would be good for everyone to get an idea of whats happening.

Romania 2003

Yep, the official page for the next big trip is up and as expected its crap (not the trip the page), oh well.

Slovenia 2002

At last it's here, well sort of. At least the trip report bits done. More to come but check this out. Drunken tales of sordid happenings in the Slovenian countryside.

France 2001

OK no one wanted to write this one but here's a link to the report by UCD caving club, not sure if its still working they keep changing servers!

[unfortunately UCD seem to have lost this report now! Ed.]
