Stefan and myself walked through Harties 1 cave from one end to the other, following the main part of the cave around to the right and to the other entrance. We found that the two entrances were not far apart. I explored a bit within the middle of the passage, scrambling up an incline and finding myself in a perhaps 1m diameter crawlway. I went a little way and came across a green beer bottle. It seemed that a local had come this far before and left this item to mark how far he'd come. Perhaps if I'd gone further on, I might have run into the same passage that Ivor and Elizabeth had found. Further exploration is needed.
