Suicro 2018 Irish Annual Symposium.

The annual symposium for cavers in Ireland is organised jointly by the Speleological Union of Ireland SUI and its sister group, the Irish Cave Rescue Organisation (ICRO). Together, the two organisations and their annual symposium is referred to as ‘SUICRO’.

The first SUICRO symposium was held in Lisdoonvarna, County Clare in 1985 and has occurred every year since, attracting up to 400 cavers and friends during recent years. Foreign visitors are particularly welcome and might like to join in guided caving trips, workshops and pre-rigged pots.

The weekend generally starts on Friday evening and people arrive into the welcoming atmosphere to meet old friends and enjoy some hospitality. Many cavers take the opportunity to renew their membership fees, buy a souvenir T-shirt and a fistful of raffle tickets for the raffle which usually has prizes amounting to a few thousand euro. The AGMs (Annual General Meetings) of the two organisations are on the Saturday and Sunday mornings. In the afternoons are workshops and caving trips, and in the evenings are talks, slide shows and the grand table quiz.

This year’s SUICRO main venue will be The Burren Storehouse. The place offers great food a large room with a stage and great beer. Its located in the heart of Lisdoonvarna and has plenty of accommodation options only a stone’s throw away.

Preparations are afoot for a weekend you won’t forget. The SUICRO 2018 symposium will take place over the October Bank Holiday weekend in Lisdoonvarna, Co. Clare, with the best caving Ireland has to offer right on our doorstep. There will be pizza, beer, prizes, talks, important meetings, beer, a quiz, workshops, beer, and maybe even some caving.

The Symposium is an excellent chance for the novice and experienced caver alike to meet old friends and make new ones.
