The Geology of Ireland is the definitive guide to the geology of the island of Ireland as a whole. This completely revised edition has been updated to reflect the ten years of research undertaken since the last edition was published. For the first time the work is presented with colour illustration, where appropriate, throughout the text. It presents the geology of the island in geological sequence and deals also with the economically important offshore geology of Ireland.
