Allihies Mines Hack

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.

Watch the video here, youtube or facebook….

Turn on the sound, Facebook have it off….

If you like the film, give it a like and a share please and thank you

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.
