NEWS – Book available for first time as a PDF – The Caves of Fermanagh and Cavan,

 

 

NEWS – Book available for first time as a PDF.

The Caves of Fermanagh and Cavan, 2nd edition, published 22 years ago, is now out of print. It is released as a PDF here. Work on an updated and expanded third edition is underway.

This is most timely as Cuilcagh to Cleenish is bringing together historical resources for the area. Most non-cavers are unaware of the significance or extent of our local caves. This book provides a complete catalogue of caves here with photos, maps and surveys. Although there have been numerous additional caves discovered since publication, this book gives a very good overview of the main caves and presents them in the context of the local landscape and geology. For many non-cavers this may be the first time they get an opportunity to find out what is beneath our feet in our own locality.

NOTE: Although the book is available freely here under copyright laws you may not copy from it or share it by any means, please see the copyright page in the pdf.

Killesher Community Map 2000

People do not live their lives according to lines on maps and they often call places by names found on no official document. Accordingly, this is a map like no other, it gives priority to local names and marks places which exist nowhere except in people’s memory.
