Allihies Mines Hack¬† –¬† Laurenzia and Salvador
Laurenzia takes a hack up through the Allihies Hills to see the old Allihies Mines left over from the 1800’s. Salvador the Irish Cob was a little reluctant but they had a good time. The film was made with a Fuji Camera and a DJI drone. I rode my bicycle ahead of them to get the different shots.

Allihies Mines Collapse

Allihies Mines Collapse a hole appeared overnight on a field which was only being worked on recently with tractor driving all over it. This hole could swallow up a few tractors. The Allihies Mines were opened in the early 18th century. There are lots of underground passage ways in the area after extensive mining in the 19th century. For a few years Allihies was the worlds largest supplier of copper ore.

The land owners have put up warnings and all access to the private field is strictly forbidden.
