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.
Watch a short video here of the hole….
