About the club...
The Caving club offers the means for anybody who wants to go caving or who wants to improve their caving skills and knowledge.
Most importantly, however, we are just a group of friends who want to muck about as much as possible. The main events in our calendar are the weekend trips to Clare and Fermanagh.
Our trips away start on a Friday evening and finish on Sunday night. Transport and all essential gear is provided. Both Saturday (energetic) and Sunday (tired) cavers are catered for. Even Armchair Cavers are put up with... sometimes! The cost of the trip covers your accommodation, food, water and transport. All you need to bring is yourself and your enthusiasm and drinking money.
We run practice sessions for SRT (Single Rope Technique) every Wednesday from 4-7pm at the climbing wall in UCD Sports Centre. We also provide videos/slide shows/lectures/etc. Some notable events in the national Caving calendar in which we participate are the Caving Symposium and the Student Caving Forum. The Caving Symposium is organised by the Speleological Union of Ireland (SUI) and along with the Student Caving Forum is a scaled up version of our weekend trips.
There are only really two main items on our agenda. They are to go caving and to have a lot of fun.
