Larger sink hole opened up - small stream sinks under large boulder passage dug out to reach a small pool sump which was relieved to allow stream to drain down a narrow fissure. Small surface stream runs into rocky shakehole into blocked fissure under boulder (assumed entrance collapsed or infilled with gravel). Small rising approx 8-10 m downhill. Constricted entrance of debatable stability. Past this a steep, greasy downward slope descending about 3 m, at the foot of which a tight tube leads off to the left. Continues a couple of body lengths before becoming too tight. Several boulders blocking entrance and rocks blocking tube removed.
Alternate Names: Upper Pol Eighe
