About this book

Thoroughly revised and updated in light of recent research and with new chapters and contributors this is the first edition of 'The Geology of Ireland' to be illustrated in colour.

The land of Ireland is largely of Precambrian and Palaeozoic rocks, amply covered by the drift deposits of the very latest episodes of geological history. In 'The Geology of Ireland' this history is traced and explained from Precambrian times to the present. Contributing specialists tell this long geological story from these early beginnings to the modern day in a sequence of chapters dealing with each period in its context.

'The Geology of Ireland' is about the island of Ireland as a physical whole and includes chapters on marine geology and the history of geology in Ireland.
