About the Event


Sat 4   On the Footsteps of Martel,

Market House, Blacklion  2-4 pm


In the summer of 1895, quiet hidden corners of the Fermanagh countryside received some unusual visitors when Edouard Martel, a French cave scientist, carried out an expedition to explore unknown caves in the hills around Florencecourt and Boho.  Martel triggered further expeditions to Fermanagh by the Yorkshire Ramblers, a gentleman’s adventure club made up of tough cave explorers and mountaineers.  Our exciting lecture brings alive this colourful, dramatic and often amusing story of the hidden Fermanagh underworld.   This event is FREE.   Booking is essential and please contact Marble Arch Caves Visitor’s Centre on +00 (0) 28 6634 8855 to book a place or for further information.
