Allihies Mines Collapse part two

Allihies Mines Collapse part two, as it already happened not much further away just a few years back. The floors part of Allihies has many old shafts and with all the rain that we have had erosion has brought about another collapse. This time it has taken a bit of the road away with it. The road in question is closed and maybe for quite some time….

Allihies Mines Collapse part two, short video below

And some images

The last image shows the new hole on the bottom left, the previous hole top right and an older one top middle right. Should be possible looking at old maps to survey the area easily enough.

As always if you get this far please like and share…
