An initiative of both the SUI and ICRO, the site has pulled together all things caving in Ireland. "This was a great opportunity to be able to present to the world what SUI and ICRO do" said T.J. "Not many people, and indeed cavers, realise the full extent of the remit that both organisations perform. It is a great indication of how active caving is in Ireland." Discussing the web siteMinister Mc Daid was extremely impressed with the content and layout of the site and, while confessing to having never been caving, indicated that he might be tempted, were the cave large enough.
