An Exploration of the Geology of County Wicklow.
Geological heritage is a fundamental asset of Wicklow.
This book is intended to be an accessible point for people to begin to see what is around them with fresh eyes, to have the broad brush of the landscape interpreted in pictures and plain language. It is hoped that the explanations here will illuminate the details in over 60 special places, that collectively make up the geological story of Wicklow.
