The SUI produces a newsletter and a offical journal for members.

We also publish many code and policies about cave access, conservation and good caving practice.

Underground – the newsletter of SUI and ICRO

Underground is the newsletter of the Speleological Union of Ireland (SUI) and the Irish Cave Resue Organisation (ICRO).

The newsletter is published 3 or 4 times a year, giving up-to-date information on new discoveries, caving events, activities, rescue and safety, equipment and techniques.

Send your stories, opinions, photos, illustrations, jokes(!) and other ephemera to the editor. Lots of brilliant stories about caving are never shared and we want to change that.

Who knows? You might even get published. Email the editor at
