50 years of ICRO
The Irish Cave Rescue Organisation (ICRO) is a national voluntary organisation and registered charity, which is made up of active cavers throughout Ireland and Northern Ireland. It can be called upon in the event of accidents in caves, potholes, abandoned mines and surface shafts.
The Irish Cave Rescue Organisation is celebrating its 50th year of operating as a voluntary rescue service in 2011. To mark this important milestone, ICRO is hosting an anniversary event on 11 June 2011. The event will incorporate the official opening of the Fermanagh Cave Rescue store. It will be attended by both past and present ICRO members and by representatives from statutory and other voluntary organisations.
In conjunction with this historic event, the Irish Cave Rescue Organisation is undertaking a fundraising drive, to try and offset the effect that cuts in grant funding will have on the scope and range of its rescue response. If you would like to fundraise on behalf of ICRO or sponsor a prize in the fundraising raffle being organised for the event, please contact the ICRO Training Officer at icro[dot] training[at]caving[dot]ie.
