Karst, Turloughs and Eskers The Geological Heritage of County Roscommon by Robert Meehan & Matthew Parkes
County Roscommon has a geologically diverse landscape with many places treasured by both natives and visitors. The bedrock foundation, with hundreds of millions of years in its formation and shaping, and the more recent history of geomorphological processes such as limestone solution and scouring by glaciers, are what has created that underlying geodiversity. Geological understanding is best achieved on the ground at sires where the rocks and landforms are well displayed. County Roscommon has a wealth of such natural and human-influenced sites, particularly of karstic and glacial types. This book explores them in an accessible way for any reader.
