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

MEDIA REVIEWS
'It is an excellent up-to-date book on Irish geology "the only publication of its type" The definitive guide? That is a fair claim.' Earth Science Ireland Magazine

'Every country needs one: an integrated, detailed and readable account of its geology. For over a quarter of a century, Charles Holland's book and its forerunners have filled this publishing niche for the island of Ireland... It is impressive to see a new edition published, particularly as, once again, it is a substantially altered volume. All the authors are from Irish institutions and, as in previous editions, the strong majority are from Trinity College Dublin. This local expertise gives a reassuringly authoritative flavour to the whole book. The level of detail in the text makes it a useful reference source for the professional geologist, whilst still being accessible to university students and informed amateur geologists. More obvious than the revision of the text in this edition is the redrafting of most of the diagrams in colour and the colour replacement of the monochrome photos. This change certainly makes the book more visually appealing.With this new edition, The Geology of Ireland continues as a valuable companion to the stylistically similar "The Geology of . . ." volumes on Scotland and on England & Wales published by the Geological Society of London.' The Geological Magazine
