Abstract: The Fergus River Cave is the only example of a resurgence cave explorable for any distance in Co. Clare. Its total distance is now over 7000 ft. The directional trend up stream is N.N.E. towards the Carran depression.The hydrology is complex, but when water flows in the cave this water is derived from the Castletown River sinking at Carran and draining into the Fergus River. In wet weather much of the cave fills to the roof.
